I have caved and purchased the Tony Duquette tome that every second style blogger has posted. I have conceded that yes, it is a terrific and monumental book everyone should have, and deserves its ra-ra status.
I also bought China Contemporary by Thames&Hudson, Sir Terence Conran's inspirations book, and the littlest Paris Style book by Taschen. I spied Candida Hoffer's magical Libraries book and had palpitations because it's too beautiful - I couldn't let it go. Have determined to find a better online bargain somehow, but any clues as to how to find genius at a discount??
