Reviews

"Highlighting the historic Italian villa that William Waldorf Astor spent a decade restoring and filling with his impressive collection of art and artifacts Villa Astor: Paradise Restored on the Amalfi Coast ($65, Rizzoli) celebrates the masterpieces of art, architecture and astounding gardens."
--Modern Luxury Interiors, Atlanta

"Villa Astor is not simply a book about Astor's Italian villa, it is much more, as it charts his other acquisitions of Hever and Cliveden also, giving the reader a flavour of Astor's life and his passion for art and history in all his houses. Recently, the talented French decorator Jacques Garcia was commissioned to restore Villa Astor to its original splendour. He has produced a timelessly beautiful, yet eminently livable setting for the magnificent collection of antiquities the villa still houses. . . . . With superb photography by Eric Sander, Villa Astor is a colossal book, but anything less would not do justice to the photography or the subject. It is a joy of architecture, garden art and antiquity."
--The Reckless Gardener

Villa Astor: Paradise Restored on the Amalfi Coast showcases the legendary Italian villa that William Waldorf Astor exquisitely curated as a masterpiece of art, architecture, and design."
