Ordinary and Extraordinary Lifestyles


Look! brings together in a single volume nearly 600 photographs that express some of the most stylish moments in history. These remarkable and beautiful images are a record of lost times and places, of people and styles now long forgotten. We witness families drinking on the ice in St. Moritz; see the French and English aristocracy at  play at Epsom and Longchamp; are offered a glimpse into the world of the American elite; view an ancient sporting world of archery, fencing and tennis, and are amazed at the style of peoples from the past.

Divided into ten chapters, the book covers all aspects of past lifestyles, from living at home to going to the seaside: Chez Moi, En Route, Country Life, Tribes, Á Table, High Society, Sporting Life, Dressing Up, Sun, Sea and Sand, Soirée.
