Ashley Hicks' first comprehensive book on his father, the legendary interior designer David Hicks. The book is divided into two parts. The first is an illustrated biography looking at Hicks' life and career; the second is a series of colour illustrations of Hicks' interiors with commentary. Ashley examines Hicks' home at Britwell and his work in London and then takes the reader further afield to New York and the international holiday homes that his father designed. There is a chapter on Hicks' shops, products and books and several reproductions from his scrapbooks.
