We Have Too Many Books, But We Need More: Assouline at Gilt

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Great day on Gilt today—click over to the Home section and there's a brilliant Assouline sample sale going on. Assouline is a publisher that specializes in lifestyle, fashion, art, design and collectible books.

The books are highly collectible—they're stylish and witty, are great for research purposes, and some of them (like the Amy Sacco Cocktail book, left) really capture the feeling and excitement of a time and a place in contemporary culture—moments in recent history that come and go, and would never make it into conventional history texts.
