These are ellegant coffee table style books for gift giving or conversation.

About The Cover: A line here, a wash of color there, these were the only tools used by watercolorist Maxine Boll-Hughes as she created this spectacular cover for our Annual Desert Living Issue. Note the economy of her work, how a few X-s can become snow-capped mountains and a splash of a desert date palm tree. In this world, a swimming pool can easily
double as sunglasses and life is a joy indeed. One can only assume our cover
model is reading Palm Springs Life!
