In the Spirit of Miami Beach – What Venice was to the world during the Renaissance era, so Miami is to the world today. An active melting pot of cultures; where Art Deco contends with Spanish Baroque; where artists mingle with athletes, models, and socialites; where South Americans and Eastern Europeans sit together for espressos on Ocean Drive.
This book explores Miami Beach style, from the mythical Lincoln Road to Art Basel Miami, one of the leading international art fairs. With an in-depth look at its historical past as well as its present-day glamour, In The Spirit of Miami Beach elegantly captures the city’s vibrant personality and cultural jubilance. With an exuberant text by noted author, entertainer, and bon vivant David Leddick, this rich volume brings one of the world’s hottest destinations to colourful life. The book concludes with a selective guide on the hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and spas to experience “stylish Miami”.
