Assouline

Tuscany Marvel

$155.00

The Italian region of Tuscany is a feast for all senses.  A creative incubator that has cultivated art and architecture for eras including Etruscan, Roman, Renaissance and modern times. Timeworn churches, once stops on nineteenth-century Grand Tours, stand tall in the towns piazzas.  Rolling hills of wheat and colourful olive groves, that inspire authentic Tuscan cuisine, are dotted with villas built by the prestigious Medici family.  The Tyrrhenian Sea extends off its coast, lapping the shore of Elba, the island where the emperor Napoleon was exiled.  Quaint villages, historic towns and bustling cities are scattered across its landscape, which is almost as varied as the communities themselves.    In the fashion world, Ferragamo, Gucci and Pucci all have ties to Florence and it's endless inspiration.  However what truly defines Tuscany is its timelessness.  Masterpieces from centuries past still lure immense crowds.  Brunelleschi's dome in Florence never fails to strike onlookers with awe.  

10 x 13 inch, 312 pages, over 200 illustrations - Hardcover

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 handmade covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of an haute couture atelier.
