These Hamptons is a gorgeous photo book containing nearly 200 photos of The Hamptons on Long Island, NY. There are all sorts of different kinds of photos showing what makes up The Hamptons. Homes, the beach, parades, landscape, scenery, etc.
It is definitely an interesting approach to telling the story about an area, but I think that it does a good job. And it’s easy to read because there’s not very many words 😉
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
