This will be a gorgeous, heavily illustrated book on the uniquely refined and aristocratic style of living that has flourished on the islands of the Caribbean from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. The book will be organized by related island groups: the French Islands (Martinique and Guadaloupe); the Dutch Islands (Aruba, Bonnaire, and Curacao); the Spanish islands (Cuba, Santo Domingo); the English islands (Jamaica, St. Kitts, St. Lucia); and the Danish islands (St. Thomas, St. John, Ste. Croix). The text will explore not only the beauty of the landscape, the houses, and the works of art and furniture, but also something of the historical background and the manner of life in the islands.
