Considering how excited we get pouring over the beautiful Rizzoli book collection we now have in store, we can’t begin to image what would ensue upon setting foot in the legendary Rizzoli Bookstore in NYC.
Since the early sixties, Rizzoli has served up thousands of glossy coffee-table book on every topic under the sun – all luxurious and photo drenched. Anyone who has a Rizzoli tome gracing their coffee table will appreciate the beauty of the publications – they are a work of art. Rizzoli’s three level store, located on NYC’s Fifth Avenue is everything a bookstore should be – grand and well, epic. With dark wood timber panelling, plush carpets and wrought-iron chandeliers, its like the Rolls-Royce of New York bookstores. The first-floor shelves pop fiction, style guides, magazines and upstairs, the second level contains a well-rounded supply of antiques and architecture tomes covering both theory and design. Don’t leave without visiting the third floor for the small but excellent music selection.
