Following her best-selling 2009 Assouline title, Gypset Style, travel writer Julia Chaplin explores the little-known enclaves of gypsy jet-setters around the world. From the Aeolian Islands in Italy to Lamu, Kenya North Goa, India and Josef Ignacio, Uruguay - and Byron Bay. Gypset Travel delves into the glamorous yet casual lifestyle of these artists, designers and bon vivants who fuse the carefree ethos of a gypsy nomad with the sophistication of the jet set through intimate photography and first-person anecdotes.

A note from us Our dear friend Sybil Steele was among the photographers commissioned to capture some of these wonderful destinations, and to our total astonishment Assouline decided to use her portrait of us (Spelly, myself and a few gorgeous friends including one of our fave Byron models Shayna Lamb and Oracle Fox blogger and artist Mandy Shadforth) for the cover! We were beyond excited when we found out! For behind the scenes video of our portrait shoot check our blog HERE, or for Gypset launch party in Montauk, USA HERE.
