Chronicles of Villa Nellcote, pt1

Geir Hørnes - The Curious Chronicles of Villa Nellcote

Last week, the beautiful book of Geir Hørnes arrived!

The full title is “The Curious Chronicles of Villa Nellcote“. It’s an exclusive and I say very beautifully crafted 400-page book about the legendary Riviera-mansion Villa Nellcote. Geir got contact to the families having owned Nellcote and thus could produce his book in collaboration with them. The outcome is very impressive: the book includes first-hand accounts, architect drawings, personal journals, more than 250 photos from private archives and exclusive, new contributions from the Rolling Stones’ entourage adding further insight about the bohemian recording of Exile on Main St. at Villa Nellcote in 1971.

So, this simply is a must have! Geir war kind enough to sign it for me, as you can see below. I’ll write a review about this book once I have read enough of it to base my opinion on. This will be ‘Chronicles of Villa Nellcote, pt2’ then…
