The Missoni family lives life in color. They didn’t just revolutionize knitwear; they forged a lifestyle that, like their fashion, blends elegance with enthusiasm and spontaneity with sophistication. Missoni style...
Francesco Maccapani Missoni is the son of Angela Missoni and Marco Maccapani and the grandson of Tai and Rosita Missoni, founders of the eponymous fashion brand. He was born in 1985 and grew up in the countryside outside Milan, surrounded by his boisterous extended family. He studied architecture in college and is passionate about design, film, and contemporary art. He now heads a startup based in Milan and is, as they affectionately say, una buona forchetta (a gourmand). Food and cooking are his passions, with a strong emphasis on family traditions, sustainable sources, local produce, and fresh seasonal ingredients.
The Missoni Family Cookbook features a forward by close family friend Quincy Jones, whose career has encompassed the roles of composer, record producer, artist, film producer, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, TV producer, magazine founder, multimedia entrepreneur, author, and humanitarian. He was named one of the most influential artists of the 20th century by Time magazine and in 2010 was bestowed the National Medal of Arts, the nation’s highest artistic honor. These days, in addition to his extensive non-profit work with NGOs such as Unicef, Jones manages and mentors a roster of young musicians. Francesco is very proud to have prepared meals and traded recipes with his honorary “uncle” and met with the approval of this consummate talent scout and buona forchetta.

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.
