Prosper Assouline

Save to my articles

In 1993, Prosper Assouline and his wife Martine decided on a whim to publish a book about Provençal restaurant La Colombe d’Or. Today, Assouline, the company the couple run together, is France’s largest independent publisher, creating beautifully crafted tomes on fashion, art and collectibles. “This summer,” says Prosper, who describes the journeys that have shaped his life in this issue of Beyond, “my dream would be to spend a week in a boat with my Istanbul partners, Irem and Sina, sailing from Bodrum to Symi in Greece.”
