Synopsis

Country by Jasper Conran

In Country, Jasper Conran uses his own experiences and the landscapes and homes that are familiar to him to portray a seductive way of life. The allure of the countryside has a universal aspiration. How do we achieve the dream? It is not about spending money, or prescribing to a certain style, it is about appreciation, self-expression and getting back to the root of what makes us tick. Moving from one season to the next, from interior to exterior, from detail to landscape, this is life as it is actually lived in the countryside today. It is one man's vision that informs by captivating the senses and the imagination. Country is realistic, full of ideas and completely engrossing - a book to spend time with. Beautifully conceived, beautifully photographed and beautifully written, Country is a new kind of lifestyle book - it allows you to live the dream.
