"A house like me, " were the words poet Curzio Malaparte used to describe his villa on Capri. There are only a few buildings which illustrate antique beauty and mystical charm like Casa Malaparte. In this book, Karl Lagerfeld has photographed this most elegiac of structures. Lagerfeld worked for five days in November 1997 to produce these photographs of architecture and nature. He used a special technique to reproduce his pictures -- Polaroid transfers on a particular paper. The results are stunning. The first part of the book shows the perfect integration of the house into the environment, and the second part documents the interior decoration and furniture of the house.
