   Great conversation piece!
I love the new look of the magazine. Wish there had been no book cover and that the title and colors would have been on the book itself.

   All About Gucci…
If it piques your interest in learning more about the history of the House of Gucci, this book is not just for looking. It has great information on the infamous fashion house's backstory and even into the present, Morgenthau said. There are some very artistic and rarely seen fashion photos of the family members. Along with the designers who have kept the brand going for all these decades. Not to mention the wonderful styling, details, and evolution that is Gucci!

   My Favorite Coffee Book Ever!!!!!
I absolutely love this book. The book is large with pictures of colorful butterflies and birds. The interesting thing is, the pieces are to look at and tasteful. There are some very little fun snippets in the book that you can touch and look at, and I'm so glad I purchased it!!! It is my favorite coffee book. Such a glamorous piece of writing, but it also shows how far we have come as a society. The Beatles' music "was almost as good as the Beatles themselves." This is by far the best product I have ever purchased.

   Beautiful Book Fit For Gucci Lovers!
I love fashion coffee tables books, particularly when they are well-designed and have great photography. The book focuses on the Gucci empire right up to the present day, so if you like current Gucci, this book doesn't cover it. From their products to their advertising campaigns, promotions and their famous clientele, there is a great chronicle of the business. It does get a little TOO deep promoting its creative director from 2005-2014, Frida Giannini, but not enough to ruin the experience, especially if you like the Gucci of the past. There's a good balance of text and photos that I must mention because I've seen my share of fashion books with too much text and, frankly, what is the point of dropping money on a fashion book with few pictures? I've had a lot of fun reading this book, and I'm sure you will too.

   Used and in Poor Condition!
Item arrived in very good condition, but in poor condition, Seller said. fading significant and sun damage, so the lack of care in the packaging was not the only issue, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The Harrisons’ lawyer Paul LiCalsi said: “This was a completely unacceptable condition and misrepresentation.

   Beautiful history of one of the world's most famous brands.
The book tells the complete story of the Gucci family and the brand. The book includes tons of excellent pictures and explains the transition from a modest beginnings to a world-class powerhouse. It's great to have Gucci accessories around. This is a slightly better version of the story, but it will appeal to readers everywhere.

   Informative Book
Rizzoli's book was first published in Italy in 2001. Giving the history of the Gucci family a new lease on life. If you're into leather goods, this is a great book.

   Very heavy and well made.
It's great for decor or a Gucci lover. My husband got a job at Gucci and I wanted to give him a book. Lots of pictures, but also informative.
