David Hicks Scrapbooks

One thing I absolutely love about blogging is receiving amazing design books to review.  I am like a kid on Christmas opening the box and immediately pouring a cup of tea and diving right into each page.  I am loving my most recent book received from Vendome Press, "David Hicks Scrapbooks".
It is a compilation of scrap books that David kept through out his years of design and business.
It is filled with photographs of the charmed life lead by David and his wife Lady Pamela Mountbatten.  Lady Mountbatten was cousin to Prince Philip and her place in society definitely allowed David Hicks the ability work his design magic and expertise for A- List Clientele and socially mingle with the likes of Grace Kelly, Jackie Kennedy Onassis even Andy Warhol.
 It is like a step back in time as I read news paper clippings and articles but I must say the design work is still classic and competes with todays sense of style.  The whole book is pulled together by David's son Ashley who has kept the Hicks name and design truly current. Here are a few of my favorite images but I assure you there are so many it was hard for me to pick a few.
To find out more or to order this wonderful book go HERE!
