In 1994, Martine and Prosper Assouline founded a luxury book publisher, Assouline Publishing. Since its launch, more than 1500 books have been published throughout the global markets on varied subjects like travel, art, fashion, architecture, gastronomy, design, photography and lifestyle. They gradually expanded it to become a lifestyle brand providing products which are required for a modern day library. Apart from books, the label also provides library accessories like stationery items, scented candles and luxury gift items. The founders are now trying to provide a complete stylish furniture collection to their customers in near future.
