"...this book sleekly embodies the understated elegance of the Italian luxury goods company."
-San Francisco Chronicle
"A richly illustrated survey of the craftsmanship, design, and extraordinary materials that have made the Italian label one of the most eminent purveyors of luxury goods in the world, this book will be the ultimate volume for the true connoisseur of luxury, and a must for anyone with an interest in the evolution of this venerable brand." -Lifeandtimes.com
"This coming year marks the 50th year of Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than with a restrospective tome showcasing more than a decade of its stunning ad campaigns? . . . From behind-the-scenes shots to images of Bottega Veneta models snapped around the globe to stills of the house's iconic hand-woven accessories, this spectacular book is coffee table-ready."
-HOUSTON MODERN LUXURY
"Indeed, cracking open Bottega Veneta..feels a lot like walking into a boutique and basking in the Italian-made glow on display." -Artinfo.com
"For once this reviewer is flummoxed by this ultimately quintessential and exquisite love letter to the brand that is Bottega Veneta. What strikes one immediately upon completion of its reading is that this elegant and tastefully rendered homage is all about the brand and not the designer, which immediately elevates its worth and value as a book concerning style, fashion, and craftsmanship—not just a single diva designer.... topics so skillfully explored in this superb book, make sure you own it."
-New York Journal of Books
"Expect to see behind-the-scenes shots, images of Bottega Veneta models snapped around the globe and still of the iconic hand-woven leather accessories -- perfect for any coffee table."
-ANGELENO MODERN LUXURY
"[Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration] features over 1,000 photographs and reflections on team-up, making it a must-have for any fashion or photography fan."
-ESSENTIAL HOMME MAGAZINE
"Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration is a very large catalogue raissoné of work produced for Maier by a roll call of the world’s top photographers. . . Strangely distorted shapes, bizarre poses and lots of pure white space make Longo’s work stand out from other campaigns by more famous photographers, far too many of which seem pedestrian."
-THE BUSINESS OF FASHION
"It may sound odd to compile a book of ads, but for Bottega Veneta, campaigns are somewhat of an art form. Since Tomas Maier became creative director in 2002, each season’s has been a collaboration with some of the art and photo world’s biggest names — think Annie Leibovitz, Nick Knight, Alex Prager, and Philip-Lorca diCorcia. The 1,000-plus photos that have followed are now amassed in Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration, a cinematic 656-page tome published by Rizzoli."
-NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"Beyond its obvious beauty – and there are some images that quite literally take your breath away – the book serves as a visual chronicle of the brand’s evolution under Maier’s stewardship."
