The Reading List….Marella Agnelli: The Last Swan

 

Do yourself a favor and devote (at the LEAST), an evening to this beautiful new book. While reading her stories, you’ll discover that the elegance of Marella far extends her beautiful gaze and mesmerizing long neck…

 

You’ll realize that the same poise that comes through in a photograph of Marella, is emitted in the homes and the friendships that she kept.

 

**Not to mention this book is way more satisfying and much less calories than you’re typical night time indulgence (less than mine anyway,  why Ben & Jerry’s, why?)

 

Back to your newest indulgence -

 

I think a lot of large coffee table books end up with too much of a separation between the writing and the images. I’m telling you that is not the case here. Dedicate the time that this book justly deserves. Sit down and enjoy it. How rare to be able to read first hand, about such a beautiful life. The photos will entice you and the words will hold your heart.

    Thank you for the recommendation. I can’t (won’t?) imagine you snaffling B&J of an evening (writes she, who’s currently addicted to late night hot chocolate and salty popcorn!)
