€ 42.00 excl VAT
Lee Radziwill has been a mother, an actress, an interior design consultant, and a public relations executive for Giorgio Armani, and in 2008 received the Légion d’Honneur from the French government. The younger sister of the late Jacqueline Onassis, Radziwill fell in love with Paris on her first trip to Europe, with her sister, in 1949. Today Radziwill leads a quiet life, dividing her time between New York City and Paris.
Richard David Story, who has been friends with Radziwill for over ten years, is editor in chief of Departures magazine, published by American Express Publishing. He has previously worked in editorial roles with Travel + Leisure, Vogue, InStyle, New York, Esquire, USA Today, and Reader’s Digest. Story is the author of the book Departures, published by Assouline in 2014.
Peter Beard is an artist, photographer, and writer, and first met Radziwill on an assignment from Harper’s Bazaar. Best known for his images of African wildlife, Beard has been widely published in fashion magazines and shown in galleries around the world. He is the author of numerous books, including The End of the Game (1965), which will be published in a fiftieth anniversary edition in 2015.
As begun in the best-selling Happy Times, her first book with Assouline, Lee Radziwill’s colorful journey continues in the much-anticipated Lee. In this quest for privacy and freedom within a highly publicized life, Radziwill shares her unique perspective as a witness to history, recalling her friendships with the numerous cultural figures, from Rudolf Nureyev to Truman Capote, who have punctuated her life. Filled with anecdotes and personal photographs, Lee is Radziwill’s reflection on the people who have opened intellectual and emotional doors throughout her life.

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.
