One remembers a handbag, a key in the palm of a hand, a pair of glasses in which a crime is reflected, a windmill whose blades are turning backwards. One no longer remembers why Janet Leigh stopped at the Bates Motel, nor the story of Notorious. Neither Ingrid Bergman nor Cary Grant, but only a bottle of wine. This is not the case with Griffith or Welles or me. Hitchcock was really the master of the universe.... He had a control over the public that no one else had. Through objects. --.
Hitchcock Style arrives at a timely moment in fashion, as the return of '50s couture elegance continues. --Harpers Bazaar

The first book on Hitchcock, which is not a film book, but a book about style, decoration and fashion! The motel in Psycho. The bachelor pad in Rear Window. The blonde elegance of Tippi Hedren and Grace Kelly. 'Hitchcock style' is immediately identifiable and universally recognized. That’s because Alfred Hitchcock’s images, which have informed fashion, photography, and art as well as film, arise as much from a particularly vivid aesthetic as from the suspenseful subject matter.
Beautifully produced, as is typical for Assouline, printed on heavy coated stock by Grafiche in Milan, and bound in signatures, this is a volume intended to last -- albeit as a smaller format coffee table book. If you can afford, buy it for what is is -- not for what you want it to be. It's heavyweight lightweight.
