Nantucket - Classic American Style 30 Miles Out to Sea
Nantucket: Classic American style 30 miles out to sea explores how the island's classic New England nautical style is shaped by its rugged landscape, as well as the sport, art, and lifestyle of its influential and everyday inhabitants. The island's tight-knit community of achievers and dreamers has created an enviable aesthetic that's affected in equal measure by the people, its historic gray-shingle homes and the 14-mile-long island itself, it's wind, sea, and wild landscape.
This stunningly photographed book will feature portraits and environmental shots of summer residents and islanders in their homes and leisure pursuits across the island, as well as watercolor illustrations of elements that shape their Nantucket style.
