Assouline


"All that is beautiful in the world ought to be in an Assouline book."
Prosper Assouline


A book is a beautiful thing. An Assouline book? That is work of art—and you should decorate with art. We are deliberately piecing together a coffee table solely of Assouline books. Each new (used) title boosting the height at which we can prop up our feet. In the Spirit of Aspen and Happy Times serve equally as coasters, leaving room on our book shelves for family pictures and our collection of loving cup trophies.

A master of style, Prosper Assouline is known for merging the modern and the classical in publishing and creative design. As the former artistic director of several French fashion magazines, Prosper’s experiences include creating and launching his own magazine, and the founding of a creative agency specializing in branding and advertising in the late 1980s. In 1995, he founded Assouline Publishing with his wife, Martine Assouline, in Paris.

Under the direction of Prosper, Assouline has conceived a visual language that is internationally recognized for its excellence. In the past fifteen years, they have published shelves of titles documenting, in spectacular fashion, the WASP lifestyle—A Privileged Life, The Kennedys, In the Spirit of the Hamptons, Vintage Cocktails, and Polo, The Nomadic Tribe to name a few. Books for people with taste.
