amazon.com, vintage shops, high end book dealers like Glenn Horowitz, and even sometimes on the street (I once bought a copy of Diana Vreeland's "Allure" from a homeless man for 50 cents). "Sappho by the Sea: An Illustrated Guide to the Hamptons" (1976) is my all time favorite vintage book. Its chic, unusual and highly eccentric. Needless to say its about two lesbians, and thats's where the obvious part ends. The book is a story of the love affair of two gorgeous women whose style I can only describe as 70's high-style preppy with a good dose of bohemian romance. Through their weekend escapades they take us on a visual tour of the Hamptons of that era, and it's a thrill to see the various towns' old-school charm before they were overrun with movie stars and hedge funders. Short historical descriptions and relevant seaside poetry (for real) round out the book, but it's the clothes that are the real gem. Enjoy!
