Private Irelandby Simon McBride (Photographer), Karen Howes
Private Ireland reveals the essence of Irish living style in an atmospheric photographic study of some of the country's most evocative and charming homes--from grand estates to characterful farmhouses and fancifull follies. The houses and studios of some of the country's most interesting creative spirits are included, from writers, artists and musicians to artisans, architects and designers. A visual exploration of Irish living style, both north and south, Private Ireland documents the setting, the character and the idiosyncrasies of each featured home--whether an historic abbey, a Dublin townhouse, a romantic castle, or a simple whitewashed cottage by the sea.
