Cadillac Celebrates 110 Years

Cadillac has certainly been on an identity roller coaster over the past several decades, but lately they seem to have found some firm footing with their new designs and branding. A book on their 110 years in business will certainly help bring back the cache they once held.

Celebrating 100 years in the business, Assouline recently published the first luxury book on America’s most luxurious car manufacturer.

Founded in 1902 by Henry Leland, he named the company after his very long winded named ancestor, Anotine Laumet de la Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, the founder of Detroit. Not simply settling for a rag tag logo for his new auto company, Leland decided upon the crest  Mr. Cadillac created for his marriage in 1687. The company quickly became a symbol of the American Dream and this heritage is celebrated in 200 full-color photographs  from the 1905 automobile to the first electric car and the 2009 Escalade.

Of course the culture of Cadillac is ever present with images of Elvis, the Kennedys, Warhol, and Prada: all fans of the brand.

The book is available in hardcover ($75) or limited edition situations with black rubber slipcases and metal Cadillac marque plaque ($395) for the true connoisseur.

Liam Neeson's career has been one of the most fascinating in Hollywood history. This Irish screen legend towers over his peers literally (he's 6'4'') and metaphorically (he's starred in Academy Award winners and blockbusters alike.) Neeson started out as a supporting actor in the 1980s before supplanting some of the biggest names in the industry. His rise to first-team status in the 1990s can be attributed to his unforgettable performance in Schindler's List.

Since 2011, Game of Thrones has cast a large shadow as one of the best HBO shows ever. The prequel series, House of the Dragon, also proved to be a massive hit when it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022, and it only became more popular as the weeks went on.

The season officially puts the realms at war between the rightful Queen of Westeros and her half-brother, who has essentially stolen the throne out from under her to become the new king.
