Assouline brings fashion, design, travel and culture to life with seriously beautiful books that are distinctly modern, luxurious and creative. Founders, Prosper and Martine Assouline launched their brand in 1994 with a credo of freedom and education: We believe that culture is the best passport for a good mind, and that good minds will make a better world. We believe that to develop an “eye” is not only a matter of taste but, more importantly, to appreciate. the beauty that is all around us. We believe that words and images can inspire and transform our lives. We believe that learning and discovering are the most exciting ways to live and to share. Finally, we want our books to be beautiful because they surround us and we live better among them. Their books open new worlds, are exciting and full of quirks you might have otherwise never have known. Go to a place where “culture can be acquired” with Assouline.
