Founded in 1994, Assouline is a high-end American publishing company, headquartered out of a Park Avenue office in New York. Among the elite outfit’s more than 1,500 book catalog, Assouline has produced numerous “The Impossible Collection” titles, elite coffee table books focusing on topics such as cars, wine, motorcycles, football, art, cigars, and golf, just to name a few.

Measuring 17.9” W x 20” L, the book is comprised of 212 pages and features more than 150 illustrations and images printed on top-shelf stock.
