Love, love, love reading the book “Journey” by Alan Wanzenberg (published by Pointed Leaf Press), whose work I have admired for years. Reading the story of this extraordinary talent, who together with partner Jed Johnson created one of the most intriguing partnerships in the world of architecture/design,
is a true joy. While his work for such celebrities as Richard Gere, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, Peter and Sandy Brant, and Beth Rudin De Woody has brought him to the limelight, it is Alan’s passion, intellect, remarkable taste, and endless talent, his personal expression that has nothing to do with vogue and trends, that shines through the pages. From his education at Harvard, through the job with I.M. Pei, to his life with Jed Johnson, former partner of Andy Warhol who died in the crash of TWA Flight 800, and to the new life he is living now with landscape architect Peter Kelly, this is a fascinating story.
