Rizzoli Bookstore creates and presents numerous special events throughout each month, many of which are designed for the authors of new Rizzoli and other publications to sign copies of books and meet Rizzoli's guests. Today's elegant book signing event, in the upstairs atrium of Rizzoli's renowned 57th Street Bookstore, was for the new publication of Jacqueline Bouvier and Lee Bouvier's One Special Summer, first published in 1974. This nostalgic, hand-illustrated and hand-written book was created by the Bouvier sisters, while on their journey to Europe in 1951, when Lee was eighteen and Jacqueline was twenty-two. The elegant handwriting is Lee's, and the adorable illustrations are by Jackie.

This book was originally made as a gift to their mother and step-father, for their generosity in sending the sisters across the Atlantic on an ocean liner, and then to Paris, Venice, and beyond. They write about social agonies, clothing challenges, and romantic opportunities. The illustrations are colorful and ornate, and the photos are authentic. And, the ideas and comments are utterly charming and invoke a sophistication and culture so hard to find these days. The Rizzoli guests were appropriately treated to champagne and strawberries.
