Descriere

Summer is the best season of all, with its long days, blue skies, and endless horizons. Summertime collects more than 100 photos that capture the essence of the season from such highly acclaimed photographers as Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr, and Peter Marlow. Quotes from luminaries intermingle with dreamy pictures—sandy toes, empty docks, blue water—that instantly evoke the perfect summer moment. A jacketed hardcover, Summertime is casual, elegant, and ideally sized for the summer cottage coffee table—the perfect gift for weekend hosts, or those who long for an escape to their favorite season all year round.
