Assouline, discerning publisher of photography, art, fashion, design and lifestyle books, will debut a box-set of six softcover travel guides tomorrow! Focusing on Italy, Greece, Argentina, India, Spain and the United States, the travel books will serve as a personal concierge. Celebrated chefs, including American Iron Chef Mario Batali—for Italy, Francis Mallmann of Argentina, Jose Andres of Spain and Charlie Palmer of the US wrote a passage, including a recipe, for each guide. The photos in each guide were taken by Andrea Fazzari. The Luxury Collection Destination Guides, packaged in a vintage-inspired travel box, is available at www.shopassouline.com and other major retailers for $140.
