One of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers and a man the New York Times has called a prophetic designer, James Magni's pristine, minimal home design is sophisticated, streamlined and always luxurious. His style calls to mind such descriptions as cool splendor and sumptuous restraint and it has been called modern minimalism. The book will feature images of the most spectacular homes by Magni, located in Southern California as well as Jackson Hole, Aspen, Mexico City and Moscow. Architecture writer Marc Kristal, who visited every home, has a pitch?perfect ear for just the right quote or anecdote to illustrate an important point (or a look). The lavish photography beautifully captures these dramatic homes.
