Home to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, the Bronte sisters, and Martin Luther King, HarperCollins Publishers is one of the world’s leading English-language publishers. Founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, it was acquired in 1987 by News Corp. The worldwide book conglomerate was formed following News Corp’s acquisition of British publishers William Collins & Sons, publishing house to legendary authors Agatha Christie, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis among others. With two centuries of experience, HarperCollins covers an array of genres, including literary and commercial fiction, business books, children’s books, cookbooks, mystery, romance and religious books. Today, HarperCollins is the first publisher to digitize its content and create a global digital warehouse.
Since its founding in New York City in 1817, HarperCollins has been producing great books in a multitude of genres. The focus in this selection is design, art, fashion, and culture — these page-turners exude inspiring images of, and musings on, the good life.
These furnishings and accents combine a rustic feel with a contemporary aesthetic. The overall effect is one of a chic farm house… but these pieces will work just as well as a bucolic-tinged counterpoint to an urban dwelling.
Princess castles, stuffed animals, and more of the stuff they’ve been begging you for.
If you’re a stylish guy — or looking for the perfect gift for the sophisticated gent in your life — these beautifully illustrated, well-written books are a coffee-table must. Architecture, design, fashion, luxury brands — the makings of the good life are represented in this selection.
