I n one of fall's most sumptuous books, and a personal favorite, Irish photographer Simon Watson turns his lens on sublime spaces — high- eccentric interiors we've long lusted to see: the Duchess of Alba's Palacio Liria in Madrid, filled with 16th- and 17th-century masterpieces; interior designer Roberto Peregalli's splendid riad in Tangier; the Renaissance Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne in Rome, designed by Baldassarre Peruzzi in the 16th century. In The Lives of Others: Sublime Interiors of Extraordinary People (Rizzoli), Watson — one of the foremost interiors photographers in the world — has created a book to make one weep.
