Part of Assouline’s special series, The Ultimate Collection, which is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Books in the collection are hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper; each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.
The British monarchy’s rich and storied heritage has been preserved for centuries, and The Queen’s People, made with Royal Household approval, presents a magnificent collection of photography that brings Queen Elizabeth II and important members of Her Majesty’s court to life as rarely seen before. Featuring forty-two unique portraits by prominent British photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas, this hand-bound limited-edition volume captures the pageantry of the Royal Court’s intricate ceremonial dress and regalia and highlights the pride each individual takes in serving his or her nation and sovereign. A historical essay by the Garter Principal King of Arms completes this grand tome.
