Booklist Review

Tuscany is big right now--and so is this coffee-table book. The fifth entry in the Interiors series, this extremely handsome volume goes inside 40 private residences in places such as Lucca, Siena, and Florence. There are farmhouses and villas, apartments and lofts. The hundreds of full-page and smaller color photos are gloriously lit, making it seem as though the sun always shines in Tuscany. American audiences may find it somewhat distracting to see the text in German and French as well as in English. Each living space gets a short introduction and captions for the pictures. Lovers of Italian living and those who enjoy books about interior design will equally take pleasure from this. --Ilene Cooper

Library Journal Review

With Florence as its center, the Tuscan region of Italy has become a symbol of romantic, rural elegance, used as a backdrop for many period movies as well as for commercials. This latest installment in the "Interiors" series (e.g., New York Interiors, LJ 9/15/97) shows domestic interiors of the region, primarily of villas but also of apartments and farmhouses. The styles shown in the beautifully photographed color photos include modern, classical, and rustic, reflecting the personalities of the inhabitants. The text is in English, French, and German. Interior design collections as well as public libraries where there is an interest in Tuscany will consider this a worthy purchase. (c) Copyright 2010.
