Designers rejoice! Louise Fili’s Elegantissima has made a grand entrance into the world, complete with stunning type and years worth of design masterpieces from the legend herself.

I can never, ever forgive my parents for having the bad judgment to leave Italy and come to America. The final indignity was that I was born in New Jersey and had to spend the rest of my life getting as far away as possible from the Garden State. My first trip to Italy was a typographic and gastronomic epiphany: quite simply, everything looked, tasted, and sounded better in Italian.
