The Assouline Bookshop

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Paying a visit to this bookshop is a must! Assouline is a publisher of art and design books and by rights belongs among the crème de la crème of the business. However, there is a slight air of snobbery about the bookshop, both design-wise and regarding the goods it stocks. The design is slightly reminiscent of a sitting-room of the sort often featured in interior design magazines. Discreetly distressed floorboards, a coffee table displaying a perfect arrangement of the latest releases, a bookshelf that is more of an element of design than a practical piece of furniture: graphically attractive book spines, built-in monitors... travel cases designed to match Assouline books and aroma candles. During the more than ten years of its existence Assouline has published more than 500 books, including the witty (Movie, Art, Music etc.) Game Book series. The various editions of this series offer a perfectly serious summary of the essence of each respective field, presented in a stylish manner and accompanied by an assortment of "fun and games" stuff. "Books often appear to lose their value when displayed in shops. And that's why our bookshop looks a bit like an apartment," claim the Assouline publishers.
