Paris, France

An established luxury hotel in the heart of Paris, it boasts a lovely central courtyard, a Michelin starred restaurant and an upper floor swimming pool. It is aimed at guests looking for the ultimate luxury stay. Ultimate Library was asked to design a collection for the hotel’s ‘Press Junket.’ The hotel wanted to create a sense of place and also echo the heritage of the hotel, as a press centre for international film stars through the ages.

We put together a bespoke collection of 165 hardback reading titles and 20 illustrated titles for the Library shelves in the Press Junket living room. Here we put together books on actors and films in Hollywood and Cannes and everywhere in between. We also brought together titles on French culture and heritage. We made sure we would appeal to both foreigners and locals by having some in English and some in French, to create a truly authentic library feel.
