Author: HRH Prince Michael of Greece, Princess Olga of Savoy-Aosta
About the Book:
A unique figure among European royalty, Prince Michael of Greece and Denmark is a member of Europe’s grandest dynasties but also a bohemian, historian, writer, and the most glamorous kind of royal rebel, who renounced his rights to the Greek throne to marry the artist Marina Karella in 1965. A Life in Pictures is his extraordinary illustrated memoir—a visual record of a life lived in some of the most beautiful places in the world, moving seductively between old-world dynasty, bohemian aristocracy, and twentieth-century glamour. Drawn from the Prince’s extensive library of photograph albums— carefully preserved in Athens—the images are a mixture of private and public, intimacy and fame.
Beautifully photographed from the originals specially for the book, the pictures move cinematically from royal palaces to Mediterranean villas, and from formal engagements with Queen Elizabeth II and the Princesses of Orléans to a bohemian intellectual life in Paris and parties with Jagger and Warhol in New York. A limited edition luxuriously produced with a slipcase, gatefold pages, and marbled papers taken from the Prince’s own albums, this captivating book offers a glimpse into a remarkable life in which royalty has mixed with art, style, and beauty.
