Nancie Clare is a Los Angeles–based editor and writer with more than twenty years of experience covering Southern California culture. For more than a decade she was an editor at Los Angeles magazine and most recently was editor in chief of LA, Los Angeles Times Magazine.
With its dreamy mansions, sophisticated residents, world-renowned shopping, and legendary haunts, Beverly Hills is the epitome of the Hollywood mystique, wealth, and beauty. Originally established as a private residential community in the early twentieth century, Beverly Hills celebrates its centennial in 2014. From its larger-than-life denizens, including Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, and Lucille Ball; luxurious Rodeo Drive boutiques; and fabled addresses, such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, to its countless depictions in popular culture, In the Spirit of Beverly Hills explores the rich and glamorous heritage of this city that lies within Los Angeles. Completing this beautifully illustrated volume are can’t-miss historical attractions, shops, hotels, and restaurants for residents and visitors alike.

The illustrated market has become integral to the worlds of luxury, fashion and design. Assouline has actively contributed to this growth by creating the highest quality book-objects whose distinctive graphic identity and editorial savoir-faire have captured imaginations, addressing new themes in a contemporary manner. The brand, with its style and vision, is a true pioneer. Beginning in the mid-90s, Assouline brought the illustrated book market to life with products that were modern, luxurious and creative. Today, the luxury book market has become an indispensable tool for luxury brands. Because of decreased visibility in print publications whose distribution has dramatically plummeted and the rise of digital media and “influencers,” luxury brands need a “tangible” product to define their DNA and position themselves in the marketplace. This presents an opportunity for brands to describe their heritage, define their style and bring their creations to life for their international clientele as well as the business world.
