Assouline books are the epitome of luxury coffee table books, offering readers a glimpse into the world of art, fashion, design, and culture. With stunning photography, in-depth writing, and high-quality printing, these books are a must-have for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life.
But beyond their aesthetic appeal, Assouline books are also a valuable source of knowledge, offering insights into the history, trends, and personalities that have shaped our world.
Owners Prosper and Martine Assouline are the masterminds behind the world's most legendary publishing house, combining the worlds of art, fashion and literature under grand locations.
Having interviewed the duo previously, we wanted to include two summer reads that are both stylish in the home and food for the mind.
Starting with Pop Art Style, this quirky fun number is a dynamic visual encyclopaedia of art and interior design (including the home of designer Tommy Hilfiger) with archival works from Warhol to Haring to Basquiat gracing its pages.
Our favourite was an ode to Yayoi Kusama, who this year celebrated another collaboration with Louis Vuitton.
For a luxurious destination read, immerse yourself in the wonders of Punta del Este - the publishing house shines new eyes on the spectacular yet not so spotlighted city which lies on the coast of Uruguay.
Famous for being the St Tropez of South America, Assouline in their elegant signature style presents the destination in an ocular stimulating fashion with imagery of the city's pristine beaches, glistening water, lush vegetation and an intimate perspective of its unique towns, one of which is architect design haven and hotel Fasano, which lies on a magnificent hill. The futuristic structure of the building offers a unique sneak peek of one of the world's most notable design hotels - perfect for a summer destination, and if you can't make it this year, we are sure that this book will be a conversation starter with guests over the season.
From fashion icons to art movements, these books provide a comprehensive look at the cultural touchstones that define our times. So whether you're a collector, a connoisseur, or simply someone who appreciates beauty and knowledge, Assouline books are an ultimate essential that belongs on every bookshelf.

By using a combination of guided breathing exercises and soothing sounds, Melo can help you calm your mind, reduce anxiety, and improve your overall well-being. Whether you're looking to start your day on a positive note or unwind after a long day in the sun, the Melo breathing device is the perfect way to enhance your summer relaxation routine.
