Moving, dreamlike excerpts from Nobel Prize–winning writer and humanitarian Elie Wiesel’s acclaimed 1968 novel A Beggar in Jerusalem introduce this latest addition to Assouline’s The Light of collection. Showcasing Jean-Michel Berts’s textural black-and- white photographs taken on the cusp of daybreak, The Light Of Jerusalem captures the poignancy and the poetry of this ancient crossroads of civilizations and empires, bustling commerce, and devout spirituality. Jerusalem today is a multicultural metropolis, a complex layering of ancient and modern, religious and secular, political and spiritual, historic and timeless; this marvelous volume expresses the power and mystery of Jerusalem’s monuments, streets, gardens, and panoramas. Originally from Transylvania, Elie Wiesel was fteen when his family was sent to Auschwitz. Later, Wiesel studied in Paris and became a journalist, authoring more than sixty books, ction and non ction. For his literary and human rights activities, he has received numerous awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Grand-Croix in the French Legion of Honor. In 1986 Wiesel won the Nobel Prize for Peace, and soon after he and his wife, Marion, established The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, an organization created to ght indi erence, intolerance, and injustice.

Jean-Michel Berts has been a photographer since age sixteen. With his rst Rollei ex camera he became sensitive to the e ects of light. Today Berts enjoys an international reputation and exhibits his work at galleries in Berlin, Paris, London, New York, and Tokyo. He has also worked on advertising campaigns for luxury brands such as Cacharel, Dior, Jaquet Droz, and Lancôme. His photographs can be seen on his web site http://www.jeanmichelberts.com

Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of an haute couture atelier.

Known worldwide for bringing luxury to the publishing industry, Assouline produces one-of-a-kind books on fashion, art, architecture, photography, design, and travel, weaving a story of L’Art de Vivre with every publication. The Ultimate Collection is the epitome of the Assouline brand as it offers an unparalleled standard of excellence in the 21st century. Each book from the collection pays homage to the time-honored craft of bookbinding and pictures are individually hand-tipped, a process which requires cutting, gluing, and placing each photo onto the page. This level of craftsmanship yields the highest quality books in the world, truly pieces of art in their own right.
