There is so much more to Mykonos than its party island reputation, as this coffee table book proves. Beautifully bound and presented by high-end publishing house Assouline, Mykonos Muse looks into the heart of this Cycladic island, located in the middle of the pristine, blue-green water of the Aegean sea. Wind-swept, warm, and with a history built on ancient myths and legends, Mykonos is known as paradise for a reason. This book collates some of the best pictures of the island’s signature white and blue architecture – not to mention plenty of shots of Mykonos’ cuisine, including octopus and greek salad galore – to create a 300-page tome that you will treasure forever.
