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.

An illustrious and storied history accompanies the sport of polo, spanning continents, cultures and classes. One of the world’s oldest team sports, it evolved from the training of cavalry units...
Nacho Figueras is one of the most recognizable faces in the sport of polo. Born in Argentina, Figueras began playing polo when he was nine years old. He has since earned a 6-goal handicap. Not only is he the captain of the BlackWatch Polo team sponsored by Ralph Lauren, he has also modeled in numerous campaigns for the brand.
With a degree in art history and anthropology, nomadic Parisian photographer Aline Coquelle has always traveled the world—she has lived and worked in Central and South America, Asia and Africa. She contributes to prestigious international publications, and shoots marketing campaigns for luxury brands. Coquelle often works with silver film in order to keep alive the magic of old-time photography and her gelatin silver prints are sought by collectors worldwide. Her other books with Assouline are Palm Springs Style (2005); The Cartier Polo Games (2006); Polo: The Nomadic Tribe (2009); The Italian Dream: Wine, Heritage, Soul (2016); Be Extraordinary, The Spirit of Bentley (2017); Zanzibar (2020).
I see polo as a sport that connects a groom from Argentina to the Queen of England—and the total opposite of elitist.

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.
