About This Item

New York: Welcome Books, 2009. First Edition, First Printing. Hardback. Fine/Near Fine. First Edition, First Printing, SIGNED by the author, in original clear dust jacket with white lettering. A large book, an amazing book - like nothing I've quite seen before. Size is approx. 11-1/2" x 13". Full of gorgeous sepia photographs by the author, some with overlays or foldouts, along with his notes about his adventure buying an old house in Tuscany and what he learned from the people there about living a better, slower, rich and happy life. Book and jacket are clean and unchipped, binding is tight, pages are clean. Map-illustrated endpapers. Inscribed and signed on title page by the author: "For Mattie and Robin, Tutto il mondo e paese!" Introduction by Alice Waters; Preface by Carlo Petrini. Edited by Katrina Fried. Designed by Gregory Wakabayashi. 177 pages. Jacket is unclipped, unchipped, very light rubbing.

"As an American cast adrift in a foreign country, what I really sought were answers. I wanted to visualize what the rest of my life would look like. Intuitively I knew the people I met would show me a path. And I was right..."

Synopsis

Douglas Gayeton is a filmmaker, photographer, and writer. His images are held in a number of influential museum and private collections around the world, and have been featured in numerous print and online media, such as Time Magazine. Since the early 90s he has created award-winning work at the boundaries of traditional and converging media for AOL, MSN, MTV, Yahoo, Fox, Napster, Vivendi, Sony, Viacom, Sega, Intel, National Geographic, PBS, Warner Bros, Columbia, and Virgin Records. Recent projects include LOST IN ITALY, a 26 episode interstitial TV series Gayeton created, directed, and shot for Fine Living, and A SECOND LIFE ODYSSEY for HBO, the first documentary shot inside a virtual world. Gayeton lectures frequently on art, technology and sustainability.
