This month of June, we’re highlighting three coffee-table books that will instantly add colour to your coffee-table (or nooks), whilst showcasing your unique interests and signalling your erudition.
Over the years, mankind has explored the moon and its brilliant satellite, giving us more insight into the mystery and the possibilities of the moon than ever before. Assouline has launched a new tome, titled Moon Paradise, dedicated to all things moon – from fashion to space travel. Examining the moon as a scientific and cultural symbol, Moon Paradise is a stunning curation of images that will make you want to browse through its pages more than once.
Moon Paradise is now available on Assouline.com.
