Louise Fili has been an inspiration for designers
around the world since the 1980s, when she raised
the bar on book cover design, creating close to
two thousand jackets as art director for Pantheon
Books. In 1989 Fili founded her own graphic
design studio, Louise Fili Ltd, and branched out
into the fields of restaurant and food packaging
design. Her lavish and elegant typography, often
hand drawn, helps advertise and market such
well-known brands as Sarabeth’s, Bella Cucina,
Jean-Georges, and Good Housekeeping, among
many others. Known for her intense attention to
detail, her fresh reinterpretation of vintage sources,
and her passion for all things Italian, Fili has
won numerous awards. Elegantissima, the first
monograph on her work, covers the breadth of her
nearly forty-year design career and is a must-have
for graphic design students and professionals,
as well as anyone interested in advertising, food,
restaurants, Italy, and books.
