Coffee tables and book shelves display some of our most treasured possessions: books. Home libraries are often filled with a mix of books kept since childhood, accumulated after countless trips at bookstores, bought while abroad as keepsakes or received as gifts hand-picked by loved ones. They hold entire worlds to dive in when we want get in touch with our imagination, learn something new, find a place to find solace during trying times or simply take a break form our bustling life. Flip through Assouline’s pages and immerse yourself in unknown cultures and landscapes across the globe or learn more about your favourite artist, designer or time period with Taschen. Don’t forget your kitchen’s private collection, which will only be enhanced by Rizzoli’s pasta, sheet cake or cocktail recipes.
