This book celebrates The Windows of Buck House. Buck House, which Deborah opened in 2001 as a New York arts and antiques emporium, immediately garnered a following of fellow stylish tastemakers. Now closed, however the shop was open for eleven years as THE destination for those seeking distinctive gifts, art and furnishings.

Soon Deborah's artistic talents led to the creation of the 6 x 6 foot bi-monthly windows featuring Fictional Fabulous Women. These included Anna Force, New York Ad Executive, Goldy Bank, Geneva Investment banker, Sheelock Holmes, London Detective; a collection of 22 formidable female characters in all.

These superb installations show us the unique lives of these fabulous women; encapsulated in a jewel box window setting, diorama style, with many of the accoutrements of their exciting and ground-breaking lives!

Buck has also included with each chapter and installation the autobiographical declaration from each woman...fascinating beyond. Women of style, substance and strength. Her writing will take you away to another world!
