THE ART OF LUXURY BOOKMAKING
Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page.
Coupling an effortless assembly with the ability to showcase every collection from Icons to Ultimates, the Assouline A Bookstand is as elegant as the titles it holds. Designed by Alex Assouline, the luxe stand, with an engraved Assouline A logo centered on both panels, comes in black, red, or clear acrylic.
