Beirut, May 2012: Alongside legendary names like Coca Cola, Barbie, Chanel, and Oscar Niemeyer, the newly published book by Assouline New York Once Weddings by Ziad Raphael Nassar would make a Lebanese truly proud; yet again, another Lebanese accomplishment, worthy of international praise and recognition.
Part of the exclusive Ultimate Collection, Once Weddings by Ziad Raphael Nassar illustrates Nassar’s most lavish, inspiring fetes from the past decade. This luxurious oversized limited edition reveals once-in-a-lifetime moments created by Nassar’s artistic talent, driven by passion, insight, and design.
It is worth mentioning that Once Weddings is Assouline’s first book about wedding designs and the first compilation of Nassar’s oeuvres in a coffee table book. Nassar is also the first Middle Eastern and the first Lebanese to have an Assouline book published in homage to his work; thus joining other Lebanese achievers in harvesting international admiration with their avant-garde creations and distinguished taste.
The book is presented in a linen clamshell case with impressive dimensions (27.5 x 34 cm) and 144 pages of pure artistic delight.
Highly anticipated in Lebanon, Once Weddings by Ziad Raphael Nassar will be available in select bookstores and concept stores as of June 2012, further to a special launching event scheduled for elite luxury design professionals and amateurs.
