MUMBAI: Viking has acquired the world rights of Barbara Streisand‘s book A Passion for Design in which the performer focuses on the architecture and building of her latest home. The book is expected to release in 2010.
A Passion for Design will chronicle Streisand‘s previous residences, from her New York apartment to her Los Angeles townhouse and her homes along the California coast. It will contain many of her own photographs of rooms she has decorated, furniture and art she has collected, and flowers and vegetables she grows in her gardens.
The book that was acquired by Viking president Clare Ferraro will be edited by Viking executive editor Rick Kot. Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly negotiated the acquisition for world rights and first serial.
