Jasper Conran is an internationally successful designer whose interests spill over into architecture, interiors, plants, craftsmanship and conservation. His book, Country is on the cusp of being released.
Conran's book is said to be 'a deeply moving vision of the pleasures of country life and an intensely felt celebration, in pictures and text, of all things rural-the landscapes, the people, the houses, the traditions. His photos lovingly document country life as it is lived today'.
