Looking too good to eat, the rich recipe’s crisp colors jump off the page with its yellows, blacks, and touches of blue and pink.

In 2011, photographers Juergen Teller, John Swope, and Slim Aarons, brought the Italian mainstay to the masses by covering the Hotel’s luxe history. In the photo book, readers are taken back to the heyday of Italy’s social scene with Emilio Pucci, Charlie Chaplin, Henry Fonda, Britt Ekland, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and Susanna Agnelli as famous focal points. With an intro from Bob Colacello, edited and produced from Violette Editions, and published by Rizzoli, it was flying off the shelves and reprinted within the initial year. If the success of the first Hotel book is any hint, then the Teller touch is a recipe for success. fdmLOVES Pellicano by Juergen Teller selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Mary Anderson.
