What a beautiful book because it opens your
eyes to the island that was a mixture of
architecture styles! Good for the armchair traveler
to open their eyes to the uniqueness of this
country. It's great for people who have visited
Cuba and had a chance to see some of the
interiors in hotels and elaborate guest houses.

wonderful book. was not impressed with connors' french island elegance and swore off this author but this one is one of the best books on cuba. the photos are beautiful, as what one expects from colonial cuba, and the text is informative. however connors seem to have a particular interest in furniture, and spends more time writing about furniture than necessary.

This book was a very pleasant surprise. The writing was interesting and the pictures superb. The book gives you a good understanding of great periods of wealth and abundance that affected this island paradise. The furnishings show the affluence of these generations and creation of Cuban furniture made with beautiful native hardwoods.

It's sad to see how such a gorgeous country with such a rich history and economic possibilities, became what it is today. Today these buildings are delapidated and crumbling. Its people are needy. A far cry from what it once was, before its downfall started taking place on January 1, 1959.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It's worth reading such a well crafted book.

This book allows a view into the elegance and grandeur of old Cuba. The artful curves maintained throughout the years of isolation. A recent visit to Cuba confirms the beauty and fascination coupled with the simplicity and isolation of a country rich with tradition and art.

Being of Cuban heritage, I was interested in finding a book dealing with the island's past and birth. If you like history, you will like this book. It is very well written, but I do wish it had more photos of architecture and the decorative arts of Cuba's past.

The beauty in this book, the furniture and design from this book is breath taking... I love antique furniture that makes a statement... This book is a darker vs if italian design books meaning the wood is just a stronger presence... SO beautiful...
