Jasper Conran's Country is unlike any lifestyle book you've ever seen. It's neither a catalog of perfectly decorated spaces nor a how-to compendium of design problems and solutions. Rather, it is a deeply moving vision of the pleasures of country life and an intensely felt celebration, in pictures and text, of all things rural-the landscapes, the people, the houses, the traditions. Country's captivating photographs delight the eye as Conran uses the landscape and homes that are familiar to him to explore universal themes as he travels through the seasons, moving from indoors to outdoors while lovingly documenting country life as it is lived today. It's not a book to "refer to" for help or advice this project or that. It is a book to spend a good long time with as you weave your own dreams for that universally desired life-one lived well, and in the country.
