Possibly our favorite—and most beautifully photographed—story explores the hundred-year-old history of the AC Santo Mauro, which a French architect built in 1894 for the Duke of Santo Mauro and the Marques of Santa Cruz. The Salon Rojo is indeed one of the prettiest hotel spaces we've seen in a while.
We feel we should also mention: judging from a tactless promotional plug for American Express in the editor's post-script (and a two-page ad at the very front of the magazine), we're guessing there was some significant financial gain involved in the magazine's publishing. So before we get all quixotic, it's good to keep in mind these things are
often always motivated by money.
But if you wanna read about desert shrimp and look at pretty pictures of hotels, then, yes, you should go grab a copy from your nearest AC hotel. Maybe you can even get a bellhop to autograph it for you.
