"The Jonathan Adler Book" is a visual feast, jam-packed with images of interiors and objects for the home, both those designed by Jonathan and those that have inspired him. At the heart of the book are ten of Adler's signature interiors, ranging from photographer Andrea Stern's modernist landmark beach house (by legendary architect Bertram Goldberg) to the Parker Palm Springs, a desert resort whose head-to-toe renovation Adler is overseeing. Overviews and details of the Parker are prominently featured throughout the book, as are images of the three homes Jonathan and his partner, Simon Doonan, share with their dog, Liberace (in Greenwich Village, Shelter Island, and Palm Beach) and six other private residences. Part portrait of the artist as a young decorator, part call to armchairs, Adler's much-anticipated literary debut is spirited, provocative, and, ultimately, inspiring.
"A joyous celebration of [Adler's] success and style."--San Francisco Chronicle
