What Venice was to the world at the Renaissance period, so Miami is to the world today. An active melting pot of cultures, where Art Deco rivals with Spanish Baroque, where artists mingle with -athletes, models and socialites, where South Americans and Eastern Europeans sit together for espressos on Ocean Drive. This book explores Miami Beach style, from the mythical Lincoln Road to Art Basel Miami, one of the leading international art fairs. With an in-depth look at its historical past as well as its present-day glamour, In the Spirit of Miami Beach elegantly captures the city’s vibrant personality and cultural jubilance. Portraits of personalities who made Miami Beach’s story, unknown photographs taken from personal archives, and a jubilant text by the noted author, entertainer, and bon vivant David Leddick, bring one of the world’s hottest destinations to colorful life. The book ends with a selection guide on all the hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, spas, which can help readers discover a stylish Miami Beach.
