We assumed that as the fourth book in a series of compilations of Slim Aarons's photographs of his years living La Dolce Vita, the material would begin to run a little thin. It doesn't. What a treasure trove he seems to have built during his lifetime of photography. The fact that this book is solely about Italy, which was his preferred home away from home, no doubt helps. Beautiful people, beautiful locations, exquisite photography. And I'm sure I'm not the only guy who will appreciate the additional, more revealing photo of Catherine Wilkes, perhaps St. Louis' most beautiful export.

Regarding another reviewer's comments: The book presents photographs "from the period", beautifully reproduced on high quality paper, just as with the prior Aarons books, leading me to believe that the negative reviewer is confusing this book with another publication.

Bottom line: if you liked his other three books, as we did, you are likely to enjoy this one just as much. Same format, same size, every bit as enjoyable.

Chris Sweet, you've done a fabulous job capturing my father's love of Italy! I always think i've seen most of the photos my dad took, but there are lots in here i've never seen...especially some of the older B&W ones. Of course i'm biased, but the photos are spectacular. The introduction is rich in information about the time my dad spent in Italy and the captions are deep. This is a book my dad would have been so excited to show off. Love it!

This was a holiday gift for my Italian wife. Very beautifully assembled and a wonderful selection of images, it compels one to want to visit. An excellent addition to your coffee table book collection.

After spending three weeks touring Italy I fell in love with the architecture, food and people. I wanted something to remind me of the beauty and this book does that. These pictures were taken quite some time ago. The sad part is if you research the people in them, almost all of them are deceased.

I wanted to jump into the photos.
Gorgeous photos from a gracious
era. The architecture, lifetsyle,
fashion, and the Rivas - all to die
for.

I ordered this as a gift for my daughter's upcoming trip to Italy. It was well received and the collection of
pictures is fabulous!

All of Mr. Aaron's books are just perfect. That is if you really do appreciate the good life or can appreciate without getting uptight over those who do. For me, this is a continuation and a perfect complement to all the other Aarons books that have preceded it.

This is a very fun volume. Enjoy!

This was purchased as a gift for a great Italian friend. He truly thinks it is just lovely. I will purchase another of these for the next gift for him.

And they loved it! Slim Aarons' books are great - a sneak peak at the lives of the quietly glamorous in beautiful photography.
