In The Maverick Soul, Miv Watts opens the doors to twenty-five authentic bohemian homes, occupied by some of the world's most inspirational free spirits. From artists and musicians, to writers, actors, stylists, farmers and more, this is a collection of people who have the courage to live life on their own terms, and are comfortable in their own skin.
From Paris to London, Sydney to New York and various other places across the globe, subjects include Marianne Faithfull, Simon Finch, Wendy Whiteley, Griffin Dunne, Linda Rodin and more.
No one person is a reproduction of another; each of us is unique, shaped by the diversities of our own individual layers, and this book is a celebration of just that.
