Singapore is a microcosm of the many and varying cultures found in Asia. Everywhere you look you see a different face, another style of dress, a different building style: it’s a layered country, full of contradiction, yet homogenised. Like the country this new book showcases these particularly Singaporean sights: the contrasts and contradictions as well as the parallels. In a way no other book has achieved.
This book, like Singapore is unique and a perfect memory of time, profitably spent and must have purchase for visitors and resident alike.
Luca Invernizzi Tettoni was a world-renowned photographer who has over 50 books to his credit, including the international bestsellers Thai Style, The Tropical Garden and Arts and Crafts of Thailand (Thames & Hudson), as well as a number of books on architecture and interior design, spas and wellness, hotels, and more. Luca was honoured with a knighthood in his native Italy, even though he spent the majority of his professional life in Asia. He died in Bangkok, his adopted city, in 2013.
