"Friends Bearing Gifts," Cicio's new book, chronicles his relationships with bold-faced names such as Joan Rivers, Lady Nancy Keith, Lauren Bacall and Bill Blass, among others, and the treasures they bestowed on him.--Sharon Edelson "Women's Wear Daily, May 4, 2018 "
Inside, its pages are filled with stories of an incredible life (Joe's) filled with extraordinary friendships.--Diane Clehane "May 3, 2018 "
It's a great book to pour over, but perhaps even better as--you guessed it--a gift.--Town & Country
With celebrity friends like Lauren Bacall, Bill Blass, Princess Grace, Audrey Hepburn and Nancy Kissinger (who wrote the foreword), the book features essays and stunning photography of Cicio's Litchfield County home and the beautiful gifts bestowed by his influential friends.--CTC&G
When Joan Rivers bought the house that would become her longtime country getaway, she introduced it to her close friend and soon-to-be designer, Joseph Cicio, as the "ugliest house in Connecticut" and compared the place to a Benihana Japanese restaurant.--Mackenzie Schmidt "People "
