Since 2019, Assouline has partnered with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted in their joint mission to create a more sustainable world. Through this partnership, Assouline plants one tree for every book sold. Once these trees reach maturity, Assouline aims to create a sustainable cycle by sourcing paper from the trees it has planted.

John Galliano has truly reinvented the art – and the very role – of haute couture, redefining its tropes into a new type of contemporary fashion that combines the influences...
Curator of the Costume Institute at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, Andrew Bolton has been the force behind some of the Met’s most visited exhibitions, including Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (2011), China: Through the Looking Glass (2015), Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology (2016), and Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic Imagination (2018). He has written several books, spoken at various conferences, and contributed to numerous publications. Andrew Bolton has received several awards, including recently the Vilcek Foundation Prize in Fashion in 2015 and the Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle award in 2016. Before joining the Met in 2002, he worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Laziz Hamani’s passion for photography and constant quest for aesthetics and meaning led him to collaborate with prestigious luxury houses as well as with Assouline Editions, for which he has produced over thirty books. From the most delicate details of haute couture to the purity of minimalist design, Hamani proposes a visual dialogue that allows us to fully grasp the power of beauty, through a simplicity that is all his own.

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.
Coupling an effortless assembly with the ability to showcase every collection from Icons to Ultimates, the Assouline A Bookstand is as elegant as the titles it holds. Designed by Alex Assouline, the luxe stand, with an engraved Assouline A logo centered on both panels, comes in black, red, or clear acrylic.
