The beaches are sybaritic and the nightlife is legendary, but Ibiza also happens to be one of the most stylish islands in the Mediterranean. Ibiza Bohemia (Assouline, $85) celebrates its beatnik vibe and artistic influences. The history of the seductive enclave is accompanied by gorgeous photography of the landscape and colorful hilltop homes, along with vivid accounts from the regulars and residents, whose names you won’t know but who all have stories to tell.
