Mykonos, the island of the winds, lies in the Cyclades and is surrounded by the blue-green waters of the Aegean Sea. This ancient island and the islands surrounding it, mythologically represented as the bodies of gods felled by Hercules in ancient times, are older than legend and have hosted countless cultures for more than millennia.

With an area of forty square kilometers and a population of only ten thousand, the 'Ibiza of Greece' is loved for its beautiful architecture, hospitable and open-minded inhabitants and fantastic beaches. With names like "Paradise" and "Super Paradise," the sands of these shores have captured the imagination and hearts of industry leaders, artists and partygoers from all over the world alike, making it a stable cosmopolitan destination and an important haven on the jet-set circuit.

Assouline's coffee-table book Mykonos Muse describes the culture and society that have defined Mykonos over the past century - from its days as a refuge for such luminaries and elites as Le Corbusier and Antonis Benakis, to its moment as a haven for the gay community, to its predominant party scene - while regaling the reader with the ruins and myths hidden there.
