In her third book in the Gypset series for Assouline, Julia Chaplin explores the living spaces of gypsy-jet-setters around the world, from Hydra to Guéthary; from Cuixmala to Pa’ia; and beyond to the Indonesian isles. Chaplin, who coined the term gypset, provides an insightful look into these spectacular personal utopias with her witty and humorous stories of the gypsetters that she meets along the way, such as Alix Goldsmith Marcaccini at her Mexican hideaway, or Halemano, a kind of hippie Four Seasons in Hawaii. Stunning photography opens the door to the fascinating and dazzling homes and haunts of the bohemian artists, designers, and bons vivants known as the gypset.
