An American expat searches vibrant cities and quiet pueblos for the essence of authentic Mexican style With Mexican, author Newell Turner begins to do for Mexican design what legendary culinary pioneer Diana Kennedy did for Mexican food. Turner searches the country for design and cultural details that are the essence of Mexican style. Taking readers behind the walls, gates, and doors of private Mexico, we are introduced to an intriguing world of interior design and architecture from Spanish colonial and baroque to surrealism, 1970s brutalism, and contemporary work. His story is in the spirit of memoirs like Driving Over Lemons, in which a traveler discovers another country--and himself along the way. This breathtaking album of photography shows how every room, courtyard, loggia--and even a chair, arrangement of flowers, and textiles for clothing--are part of a rich design heritage. Turner spent his magazine career chronicling American style and now his fascination has turned to Mexico. We are invited to join him as he explores the homes of Mexicans and other expats who share his passion for authentic Mexico, both past and present, inspired by the country's complex history and stunning landscapes.
