The Little Style Books revisit this classic material in a new and reinvigorated format. Snappy and appealing, The Little Style Books contain pictures and text from the original edition selected and reorganized to highlight what is quintessential about the style of the country, The chapter on Living. for example, is filled with ideas for arranging rooms, placing furniture, lighting corners; the Cooking chapter shows not only how other people live. but how our kitchens might be adapted. A treasure trove of ideas, this is indeed the essence of style.
