Marfa Modern: Artistic Interiors of the West Texas High Desert
Written by Helen Thompson & Photographed by Casey Dunn
The Monacelli Press

   
"This book of modern interiors captures both the unique sense of place and the vibrant artistic community of Marfa, Texas, a mecca for art pilgrims, design aficionados, and international hipsters. The idea of 'a place where the demand to live for art is so compelling as to be unavoidable' might sound hyperbolic, but when readers see how these residents live, they'll understand." —Publishers Weekly
