Mom’s Day Gifts: Rizzoli Books

May 3, 2017

By Tab Byrum

One of my favorite things to both give and get as a gift is a book, books have always been a huge part of my life and always will be. I love a big thick coffee table tome full of beautiful photos and wonderful descriptions of what we’re seeing. I thought today I would share some recently published beauties from Rizzoli, the ultimate authority on all things coffee table book. There are so many more books than I’m covering here today so visit the Rizzoli website here and check out all the most recent publications. We’re going to start with the above book, Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes,  which is described as, “Through a playful series of alphabetical vignettes, Manolo Blahník reveals his ideas and inspirations in newly photographed examples of shoes and whimsical drawings.”  Join me now for a look at several other books that Mom might love that focus on fashion, flowers, interior design and home decor. Enjoy!!! 

The Art Of Dressing takes a look inside the closets of older women with style as they share their secrets for dressing well no matter what age you are. 

There is literally a tour of France between the covers of Hungry For France as some of the best inns, restaurants, and winemakers are highlighted along with several recipes. 

This is the first book by Interior Designer Marshall Watson, in The Art Of Elegance he shares tips for making traditional decorating feel fresh and new. 

In Dior by Mats Gustafson artist Gustafson takes us back to the early days before photography when fashion collections were portrayed on paper with pens and paints. Gustafson works in watercolors and collages.

Paula Pryke is known as England’s greatest flower designer and in her new book, The Art Of Flower Arranging, she shows us how to create amazing arrangements on all levels. 

The style and ways of the Casamidy design duo of Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy are featured in The Artisanal Home, as we tour their work and casual style. 

Hopefully, you’ve seen something here today that the Mom in your life would enjoy, to see all the other recently published books from Rizzoli visit their website here. Have a great day!!!
