Call us shallow, but we do judge books by their covers, just a little bit. And on that front, these babies by Juniper Books score big. These decorative page-turners make a statement; their covers and spines create artful mosaics. And there’s substance behind the style, too: Content-wise, you’ll find everything from cookbooks to classics. Juniper Books founder, Thatcher Wine, has carved out a niche at the intersection of books and design by delivering a level of service, attention to detail and creativity that no bookseller has ever provided. To Thatcher, the possibilities of a custom library are endless – he personally designs and curates libraries of leather and vellum books; books by author, color, subject and/or size; or creations using various papers, fabrics, or custom printed book jackets.
If you’re a stylish fella — or looking for the perfect gift for the sophisticated man in your life — these beautifully illustrated, well-written books are a coffee table must. Architecture, design, fashion, luxury brands — many of the makings of the good life are represented in this selection.
These beautifully illustrated, oversize books from two venerable publishers — Random House and Rizzoli — will inspire you to get out there (or stay in) and live the good life. They cover topics that never get old, like food, drink, design, travel, and fashion.
Rizzoli’s colorful, well-photographed books are design pieces in their own right—this preeminent Italian book publisher earned its reputation by combining remarkable visuals with solid writing, after all. Shop the sale for an up-close look at the work of architect I.M. Pei, or the 40-year-plus career of veteran fashion designer Sonia Rykiel. And take a gander at <i>L.A.
