[Matthew White's] new book is as much a personal photo album as it is a historical documentation of Italianate design...a personal, almost cinematic tour.

Library Journal
White, partner in the design firm Webb White, describes how he has taken traditional Italian residential design and adapted it into a style for modern American living. He explains his obsession with the architecture and interiors via historical examples, extant Italian-inspired buildings in the United States, and his interpretation of the style for his own residences in California and New York City. Recommended for patrons interested in Italian architecture and design as well as those intrigued by the creative design process.
