Whether you’re looking to freshen your store’s collection of glossy coffee table books or are curious how Amazon, Facebook, and Google became masters of the universe, new fall book releases in both jewelry and retail/business categories present some very tasty reading opportunities.
Here are a few that we’re planning to take a bite out of:
Building a Story Brand, by Donald Miller
Miller introduces readers to the “seven universal elements of powerful stories that all humans respond to,” according to its publishing notes. Written specifically for the struggling business owner, Miller answers questions including “What’s the real reason customers make purchases?” and “How can you simplify a brand message so people understand it?”
David Yurman: Cable, by David Yurman (also at top)
This deluxe, photo-filled Rizzoli book celebrates Yurman’s emblematic cable motif and the design’s “enduring appeal through the lens of an iconic American jewelry house,” according to the publisher. It’s a must-read for Yurman retail partners, obviously.
The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google, by Scott Galloway
Popular NYU business professor and founder of L2 Marketing Scott Galloway has penned a book on the biggest tech companies in the world, with an emphasis on how they’ve infiltrated our lives. In the publisher notes, Galloway asks, “Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms?” and “As they race to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone challenge them?” Galloway also reveals how business owners and leaders can apply the lessons of their successes to their own company.
Over 130 jewels depicting animals—all hailing from the jewelry collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris—were photographed for this gorgeous tome, which features the work of Boucheron, Falize, Lalique, and others.
