Celebrating ten issues of the gloriously opulent, bi-annual Cabana magazine, founded in 2014 by Martina Mondadori Sartogo, scion of the Mondadori publishing dynasty, Cabana Anthology features the very best photography, interviews, profiles, and features from its first five, formative years, and offers an extraordinary mix of topics, interiors, objects, and visual essays from contributors ranging from Justine Picardie, Patrick Kinmonth, and Christian Louboutin to Lauren Santo Domingo and Gianluca Longo. Focusing on interior design, lifestyle, architecture, and all related luxuries, this is a truly stunning publication featuring the work of leading photographers such as Miguel Flores-Vianna and Tim Beddow, and production values not seen since Flair magazine in the 1950s. This collector’s item is a must-have for regular subscribers, as well as art and design aficionados who missed out the first time around.
In the words of its author, Cabana Anthology explores the “intellectual and emotional intimacy with buildings and their surroundings…the intense relationship of thought, place and the person. Cabana Anthology is about the magic of atmosphere and aesthetics inspired by the classics and Italian art history, and interiors where old and new are assembled to reflect the soul and history of a person or a family, not a stylist.”
