Full Description

The South of France in the Golden 1950s. The sun is shining and palm trees cast jagged shadows on a polished motor purring up the drive to the Grand Hotel. Irish photographer Edward Quinn delighted in these scenes of Côte d’Azur splendour. Like no other, Quinn captured the essence of the Riviera high society, revealing its glamorous social and cultural life with a subtle and fine sense of humour. This new edition of his Riviera Cocktail has all the fabulous and fascinating ingredients of the era: movie stars and starlets, gamblers and musicians, business magnates and faded nobility — captured out and about on the sparkling Riviera and in more intimate moments.

Text in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian.
