Rizzoli Bookstore: Important Update

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — JANUARY 16, 2014


Following news stories about the pending demolition of the building housing its New York flagship store, Rizzoli would like to clarify the situation.

The Rizzoli Bookstore is, and will remain, open for business at its current location for the time being, though the company is actively seeking new space.

For almost fifty years—twenty-nine in its current 57th Street location—Rizzoli Bookstore has been widely considered one of the foremost independent booksellers
in America specializing in illustrated books on architecture, interior design, fashion, photography, cookery, and the fine and applied arts, as well as literature, and foreign
language books. Rizzoli Bookstore has been, and will continue to be a literary landmark in New York City, and a celebrated destination for important authors and
booklovers from all over the world.

Rizzoli has been touched by the outpouring of public appreciation for the 57th Street bookstore as an important part of New York City’s cultural life, and looks forward to remaining a vital part of the city’s fabric for many decades to come.

From the New York Times:

Twenty-nine years ago, Rizzoli Bookstore, whose Old World charm, hand-wrought chandeliers and big storefront windows make it a favorite of noted authors, book lovers and tourists, fled Fifth Avenue two steps ahead of the wrecking ball.

It may now have to take flight again.

Win Rizzoli’s Fall 2013 Interior Design Collection

We are giving away 2 sets of this Interior Design book collection, featuring the beautiful designs of Thomas Pheasant: Simply Serene, Stephen Stills: Decoration, and Suzanne Kasler: Timeless Style.

You can enter via Facebook or Twitter at the following links:

Facebook entry: http://woobox.com/wfkdxk
Twitter entry: http://woobox.com/b5×4ws

9780847840816

Celebrated interior designer Thomas Pheasant is best known for his seamless melding of tradition and the contemporary. His spaces are fresh and of the age yet also enduringly timeless. Balancing classical elements, like recessed paneling, pilasters, crown moldings, and carved plaster garlands, Pheasant introduces modern details, sometimes including such flourishes and surprising complements as a scroll coffee table and a room screen of ribbed, translucent glass. Unafraid of combining pieces from various traditions, he achieves a sense of harmony and balance. Learn more here.

9780847836994

Simultaneously classical and modern, Stephen Sills’s design work is a dialogue between past and present. Filled with luxurious fabrics, furnishings from across centuries, and unusual finishes, his work is polished, seemingly effortless, and quietly rich, with a muted color palette that serves as a brilliant foil for modern art. Learn more here.

9780847841004

Suzanne Kasler brings Southern charm, European sensibility, and a respect for architectural details to her interiors. Her neutral palette, spiced with hits of color, creates warm spaces that are elegant yet inviting. Inspired by fashion, Kasler uses a scarf as a throw, adds grosgrain or satin banding to the bottom of a chair cover, accents draperies with Chanel-like piped borders, or embellishes a bed frame with delicate handpainted patterns. It is these exquisite haute couture details that drive her design aesthetic. Learn more here.

Good luck to all who enter!

Photographer Bill Eppridge (1938-2013)

We at Rizzoli are saddened by the death of famed photographer and Rizzoli author Bill Eppridge.

From Rizzoli editor Robb Pearlman:

“For the last year or so, I had the pleasure of working with my friend and colleague Daniel Melamud and photographer Bill Eppridge on his book chronicling the first six days of the Beatles’ trip to the USA. Very sadly, Bill passed away this morning. He was an amazing photographer, but more than that, a gentleman and a mensch. He told us amazing stories about his time at Life Magazine, sometimes several times over, but they never got old. Bill was one of those authors you admire and respect and truly appreciate having the opportunity to have known. His book is currently at the printer, and though I’m sad he’ll never see it published, I’m hopeful that we were able to provide him with some pleasure in knowing it would happen. He will be very missed.”

We are honored to present The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964, what we hope is a great tribute to work of this incomparable photographer.
