The transformation of Dior's mythic Parisian headquarters at 30 Avenue Montaigne as seen through the eyes of Robert Polidori.

Following the reopening of 30 Avenue Montaigne in 2022, this exquisite volume offers a unique look into the metamorphosis of the House of Dior's legendary Parisian headquarters via images captured by acclaimed photographer Robert Polidori.

For over two years, the iconic hôtel particulier underwent a radical transformation, during which Polidori was granted exclusive access to the site for the entire duration of the restoration-documenting the original state, the demolition phase, and the reconstruction of Dior's home. Registering the past, present, and future of the spaces within a single frame, Polidori's images capture layers of history in extraordinary detail. This impressive iconography offers an extraordinary visual experience recorded in one of the finest pieces of bookmaking, featuring neon printing, hand-tipped images on crystal paper, and a beautiful hemstitched cloth cover for an oversized book with a slipcase.
