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 two thousand jackets as art director for Pantheon Books. In 1989 Fili founded her own graphic design studio, Louise Fili Ltd, and branched out into the fields of restaurant and food packaging design. 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.
Elegantissima, the first monograph on her work, covers the breadth of her nearly forty-year design career. Featuring case studies showing sketches, references, inspiration, and design process, it's a must-have for graphic design students and professionals, as well as anyone interested in advertising, food, restaurants, Italy, and books.
