Description

Product Description

From renowned photographer Melanie Acevedo and founding editor of domino magazine Dara Caponigro, comes a lush dive into the private worlds and gorgeous homes of creative trailblazers in art, design, and fashion around the world.

The Authentics is a deep exploration into the substance of style through evocative photography and stimulating interviews that seek to unravel the tenets of taste and talent. The featured homeowners, all true originals, help define our culture--including interior designer Miles Redd, actress Peggy Lipton, and Libertine designer Johnson Hartig. With an artful mix of color and black-and-white photography that includes portraits, interiors, gardens, and still-life shots of flowers, food, and more, The Authentics examines the lives and work of these visionaries in an inspiring tribute to confidence, originality, and the power of finding one''s own voice.

Review

"Creative people''s stunning homes, all over the world." -- New York Times

"Two great talents--a former magazine editor and a photographer--turned their keen eyes on top influencers in the rarefied world of high design. The result is a book that earns pride of place on any coffee table." -- House and Garden

" The Authentics chronicles the fascinating lives of . . . some of our favorite Southerners. Georgia native Miles Redd, South Carolina native Kelly Wearstler, and Texas native Katalina Hicks appear in separate chapters to share bits of wisdom on both style and on life." -- Haskill Harris, Garden and Gun

"Forget the Malibu beach house or the Moroccan garden or the color-soaked bungalow. What The Authentics delivers on is personality: It''s a glorious dive into the homes of creative people around the world. Consider this a design lover''s bedtime read." -- Sunset magazine

"Before landing at Schumacher, [Caponigro] worked for years as a design editor, and this experience manifests in her deft ability to capture the unique personality in each of her subjects—an attribute further underscored in Acevedo''s photography." -- Architectural Digest

"Melanie Acevedo is one of the most well-known and well-respected photographers in the design industry . . . her latest book project,  The Authentics, is one that I am eagerly anticipating. The Authentics profiles luminaries from the worlds of art, design, and fashion including Kelly Wearstler, Ashley and Katalina Hicks, Nicky Haslam, and Joseph Dirand among others, who go beyond simply living stylishly, but also apply a sense of authenticity and individuality to everything they do." -- Paloma Contreras, La Dolce Vita

If you''re looking for a beautiful book to look pretty on the coffee table, by all means, pick this one up. The photographs are gorgeous, however, I found the content itself to be lacking. I wasn''t inspired by the stories and was disappointed by the lack of diversity. I was really looking forward to this one arriving in the mail but, sadly would not recommend to someone looking for inspiration.

Eh...lacking real beauty and inspiration
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2019
I kept this book in my library for awhile but today I’m donating it to charity... it’s superficial and amateurish... tries to be shocking and cool while really coming off as obnoxious ... no depth, really kind of boring

GORGEOUS book! I hesitated initially because of some negative reviews, and also because I have so many coffee table books, but I am happy I bought it. It is absolutely beautiful, inspiring, and also a good read. In fact, I appreciate that the reading portions are not too lengthy. If you want to read a biography on the subjects that''s another story, but you can get a good idea of who they are and their style and personalities.

I have always loved Dara Caponigro, and followed her work on multiple magazines, so I was not disappointed she produced such amazing book, with stunning pictures by Melanie Acevedo. By the way, it is larger than I realized.

It is impressive to see and read about those few who stand out, as unique and talented individuals, in our world of the "masses".
Peoples'' whose success is not interpreted by their financial success, but their talent. Refreshing!
