To celebrate World Book Day on 4th March, we’ve put together a list of our favourite new books from two of our go-to bookshops!
From Daunt Books, we chose 3:
British Designers At Home, by Jenny Rose Innes and published by Thames & Hudson.
It gives us a sumptuous glimpse of the homes of some of Britain’s best designers. Lots of familiar as well as the more discreet names
Be My Guest : At Home With The Tastemakers, by Pierre Sauvage with Olivia Roland and published by Rizzoli.
We couldn’t put down this hugely inspirational tome from 20 international contributors
Elan: The Interior Design of Kate Hume, published by Rizzoli.
Kate’s lifelong passion for colour, light and texture inform her very distinctive style and is joyful and informative.
From John Sandoe, we have another 2 offerings:
Radical Architecture of the Future by Beatrice Galilee and published by Phaidon Press Limited.
Embracing digital space as well as the design and construction of buildings, this compendium includes projects by film makers as well as architects. Fascinating and surprising
The Art Museum in Modern Times by Charles Saumarez Smith and published by Thames & Hudson.
From the former head of the National Gallery, NPG and the Royal Academy, an architecturally inclined assessment of how we display art. An extremely knowledgeable and eloquent author
Not so new but we couldn’t resist including one of our all-time favourite books: Jon Bannenberg. A life In Design, written by Dickie Bannenberg and published by a style=”color: #f47d45;” href=”https://www.juliancalderpublishing.com” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Julian Calder Publishing. A history, and a tribute to his brilliant father with whom he worked closely for 20 years, and who continues the story at Bannenberg & Rowell.
Lastly, if you’d like help with your acquisitions and library, may we suggest Ultimate Library, which provides bespoke book collections and libraries for hotels and resorts; retail spaces and private residences.
