Reviews - What do customers think about Sayn-Wittgenstein Collection?
Gorgeous! Mar 30, 2008
Everything about this book is gorgeous, especially the photographs! This woman has a way of taking candid photos in which everyone looks wonderful, and that manage somehow to capture a moment. The size is dramatic and the paper is thick and luxurious- this is everything that a book should be. This is, however, a very specific book, and will be enjoyed most by people who follow the european and international social set. Love it!
