Sculptural and playful, "books, by the bms." is a collection of hand gilded coffee table books created by artist Brian Stanziale. Each book in the collection is adorned with a bold and sometimes provocative cover designed to create a unique and original moment in any home. Images comprised of hundreds, sometimes thousands of gold and/or silver tacks ranging from playful to powerful elevate that status of the book from literature to art. Pulling from his background in fashion, Brian's pieces aim to bridge the gap between home decor and personal style.
