Interview with the Assoulines

Having blagged my way into the opening party of the Maison Assouline on Piccadilly some months ago, where the glamorous French/US publishing house has set up (very grand) shop, I decided to try and interview Prosper and Martine Assouline, the brains and éclat (together, not respectively) behind the business.

Earlier this year, when the Assoulines were over in London, we sat down in Swann’s Café at the Maison and talked about how they started, whether their products are books or luxury goods and the Disneyfication of France. You can read the interview here or download a PDF.
