All the Buildings in New York…That I’ve Drawn So Far

The new book All the Buildings in New York is a love letter to the city told through James Gulliver Hancock’s unique and charming drawings of the city’s diverse architectural styles and cityscape. His buildings are colorful and chock full of fun and offbeat details, and this book is full of new discoveries as well as old chestnuts for anyone who loves the Big Apple. Organized by neighborhoods, the book features iconic New York buildings, such as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Flatiron Building, as well as the everyday buildings that make up New York City—the boutique shops in SoHo, timeless brownstones in Brooklyn, and rows of busy markets in Chinatown. New Yorkers and tourists alike will savor this one-of-a-kind volume that uniquely celebrates the energy and spirit of the city that never sleeps.

Hollister Hovey’s Heirloom Style

Proclaimed as “the New Antiquarians” in the New York Times, Hollister Hovey (the creator of the lifestyle blog hollisterhovey.blogspot.com) and Porter Hovey (a photographer and interior decorator) are proponents of an aesthetic that mixes Ralph Lauren, the Royal Tennenbaums, and a whole lot of taxidermy. As the principles of Hovey Design, they work to integrate nostalgia, adventure, and history into the home.

In their new book Heirloom Modern: Homes Filled with Objects Bought, Bequeathed, Beloved, and Worth Handing Down, the sisters pull back the velvet drapes on the model ships, antique book collections, and vintage Vuitton trunks that fill the homes of today’s chicest heirloomists and flea-market lovers. This book opens up the homes of individuals and couples to show how they use décor to give their residences a sense of history and autobiography. The Hoveys venture into the apartments, cottages, and townhouses of artists, architects, designers, furniture makers, and landscape designers, who seamlessly integrate inherited keepsakes, tag sale curiosities, collections and memorabilia, and contemporary art. Inspiring in its eclecticism, this book introduces readers to a new kind of modern.

Take a Video Tour of Rizzoli Bookstore

For nearly fifty years New Yorkers and travelers from around the world have found at Rizzoli Bookstore a collection of books that always transcends expectations.

Established in New York in 1964 Rizzoli moved in 1985 to its present location— a six story townhouse exhibiting on its façade a sober classicism that belies the elegant interior within, where cast iron chandeliers, ornately decorated vaulting, and a luminous Diocletian window create a serene setting for booklovers amidst the rush of Midtown Manhattan.

Our collection of books is specialized in illustrated subjects—fashion, interior design, art, architecture,  photography, design— and literature, in Italian, French, Spanish, and English. But all subjects of general interest are represented and we carry a selection of European magazines and newspapers. We also carry a fine selection of compact discs and DVDs, and our selection of note cards and stationery is a constant delight to our customers.

Book Publisher Profile: Charles Miers

Books are a medium for visual people…The curated quality of the book is highly valued and the production quality is second to none. A book provides a more efficient way to look at a collection of work on a particular subject than anything else.

—Charles Miers, Publisher, Rizzoli New York

Miss Rosen of Le Journal de la Photographie sat down with Rizzoli Publisher Charles Miers as part of their Book Publisher Profile series. “Since Miers took the helm in 2002,” Rosen writes, “the list has become exquisite, a cohesive and consistent blend of high quality editorial, design, and production for some of the most important artists working today in art, architecture, fashion & beauty, interior design, and travel, among others.”

Betony Vernon presents The Boudoir Bible

Betony Vernon is a sex educator based in Paris and Milan. Pursuing her vision—to dismantle the pleasure Taboo—she created the Paradise Found Fine Erotic Jewelry collection. This led Betony to the realization that our society suffers from a dire lack of sexual understanding. Her twenty years of design work, sexual research and personal explorations culminate in The Boudoir Bible: The Uninhibited Sex Guide for Today.

Although it covers the basics, The Boudoir Bible is a comprehensive and instructional guide to the new sexual landscape, filling the niches missing from the “classic” sex guides with chapters on subjects like rope bondage, restraints of sound and sight, erotic flagellation, and the stimulation of new erogenous zones. Going beyond “lovemaking”, this witty and uninhibited tome expands the sexual act with chapters entitled “The Genital Gym,” “Nipple Tease,” “Male Ejaculation Control,” and “The Anthems of Anal Sex.”

Well-researched, The Boudoir Bible is written from a joyful, sex-positive point of view. Illustrated by the renowned artist François Berthoud, whose provocative creations have graced both Prada campaigns and museum exhibitions, this book provides a fresh view of sexuality in the twenty-first century.
