  • Product Notes

    From The Rake's Contributing Editor Nick Foulkes comes Bals: Legendary Costume Balls of the Twentieth Century, a stellar addition to Assouline's collection of incomparable tomes. "Tomes" because the term "coffee table books" does none of them justice, least of all this book on nine of the most exceptional private parties of the Twentieth Century, from Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball to Paul Poiret’s Thousand and Second Night Party. Its pages are replete with images of and anecdotes from (or about) the most glamorous and intriguing guests, including Capote, Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor and Cecil Beaton. Jacqueline de Ribes, Hélène David-Weill, and Marisa Berenson share their memories. A truly unique gift, this book will enhance any room, no matter where it falls open. Just don’t drop it on your foot.
