"More is More: Tony Duquette" delves into the design philosophy and creative process of this celebrated, over-the-top American artist and designer through images of his countless projects curated by Hutton Wilkinson from Duquette's vast, unpublished archive. This exquisite second volume on Tony Duquette delves into the personal life of this American designer known for his fantastic interiors and fabulous parties. While Abrams' first volume served as a visual biography, this companion volume focuses on his design philosophy, studio practices, concept art and commissioned work. It takes the reader beneath the surface, into Duquette's social habits and the intimate circle of his accomplished friends. Based on 'The Enchanted Vision' (Duquette's three-day UCLA lecture given in the early 1970s), this beautifully illustrated volume explains Duquette's artistic view on the arts of living and the living arts. Also included is a DVD of a never-before-seen film, the last film made by Academy Award-winning director John Frankenheimer, of the Tony Duquette exhibition Our Lady Queen of the Angels. The script is by Ray Bradbury, the film is narrated by Charlton Heston and the score was composed by Garth Hudson of The Band especially for this film. Duquette's voice is also featured and there is a special appearance by him at the end of the film.About the Author:
Hutton Wilkinson is President of Tony Duquette, Inc., where he continues Duquette's business as a jewellery and interior designer. Wilkinson began working for Duquette while still a teenager and ultimately became his business partner, a role he has performed for more than 30 years.

Summary: More Is More, the exquisite second volume about Tony Duquette, delves into the creative process and personal life of this great American designer renowned for his fantastical artwork, sculpture, jewelry, gardens, film sets, and interiors. Using "The Enchanted Vision"--a three-day lecture delivered by Duquette at UCLA in the early 1970s--as its springboard, More Is More conveys through lavish illustrations Duquette's artistic credo on the arts of living and the living arts. Author Hutton Wilkinson explains Duquette's design philosophy, creative process, and studio practices, as well as the evolution of his exceptional style and vision. While Duquette's own work receives full attention, an entire chapter is devoted to the artwork and persona of his wife, Elizabeth "Beegle". This personal dimension is further enhanced by countless anecdotes about the fabulous life they led together: their international travels, active social lives among royalty and the jet-set, their many dinner parties and gatherings, their homes and studios. The final chapter reveals that Duquette's legacy is alive and well as Wilkinson continues to develop the Duquette style and expand the brand across the globe.
