Hotel Il Pellicano

I randomly came upon this book while running around town and the moment I saw Slim Aaron's name on it, I bought it. Slim's work is synonymous with showing how the rich and famous live and this book is no exception.
Il Pellicano was founded in 1965 by a couple of American socialites and continues to be a mainstay for celebrities, royalty, and anyone else worth a damn.
As much as I love Slim's work, I like how this book has 3 different photographers/perspectives who shared their favorite pictures of their time at Il Pellicano. John Swope and Slim tackle the early years while Juergen Teller lent his camera for the current years, which show the hotel's expansion but still maintaining its roots.
