From the Book Review by Carleton Varney* are these two excerpts:

“Every so often a design-oriented book arrives on my desk that I find delightful, charming, informative and truly beautiful to look at, explore and wonder about. Such is a book published by The Cottages Press in Lake Worth, and the book’s title is similar to the name of the publisher — The Cottages of Lake Worth.
     Since I first saw it, I have purchased several copies from Studio 205 at 600 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth, a magazine and bookshop that’s also a boutique with trinkets extraordinaire. Andy Amoroso, the proprietor, will fetch you a copy of the book if one is not on display.”

and. . .

     “If you delight in color, charm and old world Florida, The Cottages of Lake Worth is a must for your home library! I just cannot say enough good things about this book.”
