Objects of Desire by Maria Hummer Tuttle

Written by Maria Hummer Tuttle

Photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna

Foreword by Edmund de Waal

 

A personal celebration of the hunt for—and joy of living with— favorite collections and things

In this exquisitely illustrated book, she serves as our guide through three dwellings, focusing our attention on objects ranging from an ancient Chinese horse sculpture to a Louis XV clock painted with characters from an Aesop fable, from a small snail sculpture found in a venerable hardware store to a monumental safety-pin sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, and from 18th-century to 20th-century furniture. 

 With a foreword by master ceramicist and acclaimed author Edmund de Waal and featuring two lavish gatefolds, Objects of Desire is a feast for the eyes and an object to be cherished in its own right.
