For the first illustrated autobiography of one of the founders of interior design, only a stylish and protective Slipcase would do. Sought after by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Andy Warhol, Jacqueline Onassis, and Marlene Dietrich, Rose Cumming was famed for her flamboyant interiors and blending of contrasting aesthetics from gothic to baroque to oriental. Written by Jeffery Simpson, renowned author and editor of Architectural Digest, this heirloom edition was sold in a paperboard slipcase wrapped in Sierra. The elegant natural fabric cover was embellished with a clear foil stamp on both sides.
