Assouline Travel Series

Mykonos Muse


There is so much more to Mykonos than its party island reputation, as this coffee table book proves. Beautifully bound and presented by high-end publishing house Assouline, Mykonos Muse looks into the heart of this Cycladic island, located in the middle of the pristine, blue-green water of the Aegean sea. Wind-swept, warm, and with a history built on ancient myths and legends, Mykonos is known as paradise for a reason. This book collates some of the best pictures of the island’s signature white and blue architecture – not to mention plenty of shots of Mykonos’ cuisine, including octopus and greek salad galore – to create a 300-page tome that you will treasure forever.

Assouline is one of the world’s most respected publishers of high-end coffee table books. The publishing house, founded in Paris in 1994, is run by co-founders Martine and Prosper Assouline who are known as the “librarians of luxury”. Mykonos Muse was written and photographed by Lizy Manola, a Greek photographer. Manola splits her time between Athens and New York, as well as her summer house in Mykonos, where she has been holidaying for more than 30 years.
