Description

What is luxury? Luxury tends to be associated with excess and possessions enjoyed for their own sake, rather than any use value. It is manifested in different ways and objects of desire differ greatly from person to person. However, luxury items do usually have certain things in common - quality of design and manufacture, high monetary value and a real or perceived exclusive cachet.

This book presents a plethora of adjuncts for the luxurious man's dream lifestyle - yachts and sailing boats, fast cars and motorbikes, private planes, posh hotels over the face of the globe and 'gentlemen's things'. With the best part of a thousand pictures this is a coffee table book par excellence as well as a reference work for the high end designer.
