In COUNTRY, Jasper Conran claims that country life is a universal aspiration ...the dream ... not achieved by spending money or 'getting the look', it is about understanding, self expression and getting back to the root of what makes us tick.

This is a book that one savours from beginning to end. One of UK's leading designers, Jasper Conran spends a year exploring ... a journey through landscapes, seasons and homes ... an insight into life in the country as it is today.  Andrew Montgomery's stunning photography captures it all.

Each village, building or season with their own story to tell !!!  I have to say, the discovery is one thing ... however capturing and sharing it all through a designers eye is very special. 

'Remember the simple things the countryside has to offer and treasure them...'
