The American South is a place steeped in history and tradition. We think of sweet tea, thick drawls, and even thicker summer air. We also may think of it as a place with a fraught history, complicated social norms, and dated perspectives. Yet among the makers and artists of the South, there is a powerful movement afoot.
Photographer and influencer Alyssa Rosenheck shines a much needed spotlight on a burgeoning community of people who are taking what’s beloved, inherent, and honored in the South and making it their own. The New Southern tours more than 30 homes and includes interviews with the designers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs who are reinventing Southern design and culture. This beautifully illustrated book is sure to inspire the home and soul.
