Editorial Reviews

Natasha Singer
Russian Style, a new coffee-table book published by Assouline, seeks to mothball - or at least subvert - stereotypes of Russia as a land of vodka, babushkas and the mafia. The book … is designed as a glossary of Russian style and culture. It has one entry per page, each illustrated by a striking, often ironic image.
—The New York Times
