Born in Milan, Massimo Nava was introduced to journalism at a young age, joining the editorial staff of Avvenire when he was nineteen years old. Graduating from the University of Milan with a degree in literature and philosophy, Nava then earned a position at Corriere della Sera, Italy’s leading national daily newspaper. In the following decades, he covered numerous noteworthy conflicts around the world, worked as a correspondent in Paris and wrote several nonfiction books and novels. Nava is currently a columnist at Corriere della Sera.

Oberto Gili began taking photographs at an early age, but the idea of becoming a photographer was planted when he saw the film Blow-Up, by Michelangelo Antonioni. In the early 1970s, he moved to London to work as an assistant to photographer Michael Joseph, after which he moved to Milan to work for the publisher L’Esperto. He has been traveling the world taking pictures ever since. Gili has worked for Condé Nast, New York Magazine and The Washington Post Magazine.

Standard Gift Wrapping

Assouline signature gift wrapping is available. When this option is selected, books are wrapped in a special white matte gift wrapping paper – sourced specifically by the Assouline family for an authentic approach and sealed with the brand’s signature red wax seal for the final touch of luxury.

THE ART OF LUXURY BOOKMAKING

Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page.
