Louise Fili has been an inspiration for designers around the world since the 1980s, when she raised the bar on book cover design, creating close to 2,000 jackets as art director for Pantheon Books. Elegantissima is the first monograph on her work and covers the breadth of Fili’s nearly 40-year design career.
Her lavish and elegant typography, often hand drawn, helps advertise and market such well-known brands as Sarabeth’s, Bella Cucina, Jean-Georges and Good Housekeeping, among many others. Known for her intense attention to detail, her fresh reinterpretation of vintage sources, and her passion for all things Italian, Fili has won numerous awards.
