Author(s): Elizabeth McMillan
This book tells the story of a courtyard house in southern Spain. Featuring photographs by Richard Barnes and design by Lucille Tenazas, the style-focused book documents Casa Alta, the home of Victor Carrasco and Elizabeth McMillen for nearly thirty years. Elizabeth's essay discusses the evolution of the house, from near teardown conditions to a respectfully restored and eclectic place filled with history (and Victor's collections and a beautiful lemon tree pool!). This book features additional contributions by Victor Carrasco, Antonio Ortiz, John A. Loomis and Jacob Cortines
