About the Item

Designing Camelot Hardcover book This illuminating study documents the transformation of the White House from the home of the U.S. presidents to a notable house museum occupied by successive presidents of the United States. This transformation took place between 1961 and 1963 under the guidance of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy; the premier collector of American decorative arts, Henry Francis du Pont; and the French interior designer Stephane Boudin. Room-by-room accounts detail the decoration and furnishing of White House interiors, and both private and public rooms are all addressed. This is more than an evocative account; it is based on the authors' master's theses at, respectively, the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture at the University of Delaware. A fine work of scholarship on a topic of popular interest, this is recommended for most architecture and interior design collections. Peter Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
