Good news for Italophiles: the dollar is strong again and our updated guide to artisan shops in Florence has just been released! The Cognoscenti’s Guide to Florence, written with Lise Apatoff, takes you on a tour from Aqua Flor, a profumeria that will create your own custom scent, to Zecchi, a legendary art supply store with a dazzling display of colored dry pigments. If you can’t bring home the exquisite colors, no matter at all: our newest pencils, Tutti Frutti, have also just arrived—double-sided with complementary hues. Buon viaggio!
