Il Pellicano: Tuscan Paradise
Slim Aarons, John Swope and Juergen Teller Depict the Hotel’s Decadent History
June's selection is the wonderful book Il Pellicano: Tuscan Paradise. Il Pellicano, is a photo documentary of the famously beautiful resort. Images by Slim Aarons, (I will own one of his oversized photographs some day), John Swope, and Juergen Teller record the gorgeous property and jet setting clientele who have visited the resort over the years.
The Il pellicano resort is set on Italy's Monte Argentario Peninsula. A destination I one day dream of visiting. Il Pellicano was founded by Patricia and Michael Graham in 1965 the photos.
I find photography vintage and new to be one of my greatest inspirations. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
