Cabinets of curiosities by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

38 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this erudite survey Patrick Mauries traces the amazing history of these 'rooms of wonders'. Not many survive, though there are pictorial records. But their contents still exist and are among the treasures of museums all over the world." "Once the concern only of scholars and art-historians, the cabinet of curiosities has, since the Surrealists, undergone an astonishing revival as an object of aesthetic pleasure, as well as emerging as a source of inspiration for interior decorators and contemporary artists." "This is one of those rare books that rescues a visually exciting but apparently abstruse subject from the distant past and shows its considerable resonant power to interest, excite and move us today."--BOOK JACKET

Jewelry by Chanel by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores one of the many sides of Coco Chanel, a creature of contrasts whose legacy continues to intrigue her admirers. There was the Chanel of the most sumptuous baroque, of dazzling, playful, unrestrained jewelry, of diamonds and emeralds shimmering like stars, and there was the Chanel of the tailored suit and the little black dress, of the severe cut, the strand of pearls, of classicism à la française. Out of this dialogue between hyperbole and understatement, and in counterpoint to the costume jewelry that she gave to the world, she created jewelry that was unparalleled in its insistence on luxury and refinement and unfettered in its imagination. Her jewelry presents one of the least known aspects of her work. With more than 120 illustrations and based on archival research and interviews with Chanel's colleagues and other witnesses to her life and career.--From publisher description

Piero Fornasetti : practical madness( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extensive illustrated survey of one of the most inventive design minds of the twentieth century. Combining whimsy and elegance, Piero Fornasetti transformed everyday objects like cups, scarves, and plates into much sought-after works of art with his idiosyncratic motifs, such as the hand, the female face, and luminescent fish. His dazzling pieces of trompe l'oeil furniture, created in collaboration with Gio Ponti, are also highly prized by collectors worldwide. Fornasetti's boundless imagination is celebrated here in a book published to document a major retrospective exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The first half of the monograph is organized by type and includes Fornasetti's paintings, drawings, and furniture. The second half focuses on favorite themes: his use of trompe l'oeil, architectural drawings, and his variations on the face of a famous operatic beauty. Featuring 400 illustrations covering almost fifty years of a protean and prolific designer and artist like no other, this is a must-have for Fornasetti connoisseurs and anyone interested in design."--
