The book This Home Within Us is the perfect holiday gift.

Home Within Us: Romantic Houses, Evocative Rooms

By: Susan Sully

This first book on McAlpine’s two firms, McAlpine Tankersley Architecture and McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors, captures their dwellings—from country and seaside retreats to homes in historic American neighborhoods, offering favorite period styles with a timeless quality. Presented are over twenty houses in a variety of settings that illustrate concepts running throughout the firms’ work. Juxtaposing intimate spaces with lofty entertaining areas and combining unexpected materials, such as stone with thatch, are among the hallmarks of these prestigious firms. Examples include a Mediterranean-revival house with sleek factory-sash windows and classical Roman columns, a beach house with a vaulted hallway leading to a light-filled contemporary salon, and an unusual house that blends Scottish vernacular style with modern details.


The book Poetry of Place is the perfect holiday gift.

Poetry of Place: The New Architecture and Interiors of McAlpine

By: Susan Sully

An appealing approach to creating dwellings blending vernacular styles, fine craftsmanship, and indigenous materials. The second volume published by Rizzoli on McAlpine features the recent projects of one of the country’s most highly respected architecture and interior design firms, renowned for its timeless houses exemplifying the charm and elegance of traditional and vernacular English, American, and European styles blended with a modern sensibility. This book profiles stunning projects, from a stone tower folly standing in the gardens of a Tudor-style house to a humble yet elegant wooden lakeside retreat.


The book Real Maine Food is the perfect holiday gift.

Real Main Food

By: Ben Conniff and Luke Holden of Luke’s Lobster

Down-home recipes from the best restaurants, food artisans, bakeries, and farmers across Maine. Eating a hot buttered lobster roll is like taking a mini-vacation: it conjures the scent of salt in the air and the crash of waves on the rocks — the essence of a day at the beach in Maine. Real Maine Food explains how to re-create this humble delicacy as well as more than 100 other Maine dishes at home. Among the dishes are Smoked Haddock and Leek Pie, Lobster Gruyere Grilled Cheese, Crab and Corn Frittata, Blueberry Pancakes, and Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies. Real Maine Food taps into the magic that draws visitors to the state year after year.


Give the book Design for the Hamptons this holiday season.

Design in the Hamptons

By: Anthony Iannacci

A luxurious look at nineteen private houses in the Hamptons — with architecture, interiors, and gardens from celebrity designers, including our own Robert Stilin. These architects and interior designers are inspired by the island’s renowned natural beauty to create houses that set the global standards for oceanfront style. The properties range from shingled beach cottages to a redesigned 1840s barn and a sustainable, glass-walled guesthouse on pilings. They display a curated blend of traditional references with cutting-edge architecture and enviable art collections, finished by the South Fork’s famous light and ocean views.
