Miami Beach: Blueprint Of An Eden
From Michele Oka Doner and Mitchell Wolfson, this is the story of an extraordinary time and place, told through the prism of two founding families, the Wolfsons and the Okas. The authors' fathers were each mayors of Miami Beach, one in the 1940s and the other in the 50s and early 60s, and their mothers were prominent first ladies, who regularly welcomed the creme de la creme of society to their enchanting city. The Wolfsons' and Okas' exhaustive family archives provide a rich cultural, architectural, political, social, botanical, stylistic, gastronomic, geological, and poetic history of the contemporary phenomenon that is Miami Beach. At once an intimate memoir, a sprawling history and a work of great artistic integrity, Miami Beach invites you to step back into a world so visual, mythical and filled with family lore that its local intensity illuminates a national character. This hand-bound collector's edition is signed and numbered by the authors and contains a page of Miami Beach palm frond as well as a palm frond-embedded gold cloth cover.
