ASSOULINE IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE WELL-LIVED LIFE:
ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF HOUSE & GARDEN

USA- Assouline Publishing, the illustrated book-publishing house behind such extravagant titles as Rena Sindi’s Be My Guest, Lee Radziwill’s Happy Times, Dominique Nabokov’s Paris Living Rooms, Brooke de Ocampo's Bright Young Things London and Kelly Killoren-Bensimon’s In The Spirit of the Hampton’s, is pleased to announce its latest venture into the world of the privileged set with the release of The Well-Lived Life; One Hundred Years of House & Garden. With text by Dominique Browning and the editors of House & Garden and photographs by such legendary photographers as Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst, Lord Snowdon and Alfred Eisenstaedt, The Well-Lived Life offers a luxurious peek into one hundred years of the homes and gatherings of a country built on the pleasure of welcoming others. Ranging from the formal to the impromptu, the book surveys the joy with which Americans approach how- and where- to live. Few magazines can lay claim to a century of history or to having published work by so many extraordinary and distinguished photographers and writers as House & Garden. Now, straight from the pages of this well-loved periodical, The Well-Lived Life presents a lavish chronicle of a country and a culture coming into its own, documenting America’s continuing education in matters of house, home and garden over the course of the twentieth century.
