Описание: "Mother Nature is the best designer" has served as the unofficial motto for Tiffany & Co since Charles Lewis Tiffany founded his company in 1837. This two-volume, slipcased set presents Tiffany's bejewelled plant and animal kingdom. Here the famed designers pay homage to the way nature has inspired the design of intricate jewellery and precious objects. Each book illustrates in detail how Tiffany's stylistic treatment of the plant and animal world has changed over 150 years. John Loring traces the influences of cultural and aesthetic movements on jewellery design and history from Edward C. Moore's Japanese silver, Paulding Farnham's High Victorian masterpieces and John T. Curran and Louis Comfort Tiffany's art nouveau creations, to Jean Schlumberger's mid-20th-century haute-couture jewellery and the contemporary triuhs of Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso.

Описание: Illuminated manuscripts are widely recognised as among the most beautiful objects of the western world. This is a book about their making: about the many talents involved in producing the missals, Books of Hours, breviaries and bibles that astonish us still with their richness and beauty. The original illuminated manuscripts were collaborative productions, with different specialists contributing script, initials, borders, illustration, and binding to the work.
Rowan Watson's study is both scholarly and rich in anecdote; he not only brings individual scribes and book dealers vividly to life but throws light on the commercial and religious environments in which they worked, and on the co-operative working practices devised for their production. Having looked at the individual elements of the illuminated page, the author then turns his attention to a sequence of splendid leaves from some of the great illuminated masterpieces in the museum's collection. He also discusses how early books were marketed and sold, and ends with a look at the survival of illumination after the advent of the printing press and its revival in the nineteenth century at the hands of pioneering designers such as Owen Jones and William Morris.
The illustrations are drawn from the exceptional and largely unpublished collections of the V&A, and the text offers us an entirely new look at the subject, treating illumination as a key to the history of the period, as much as an expression of medieval and Renaissance (and neo-Gothic) styles and sensibility.
Описание: In 1922, Wharton Esherick showed a copy Rhymes of Early Jungle Folk, which he had illustrated with woodcut prints, to Harold Mason, owner of the Centaur Bookshop in Philadelphia. Impressed by what he saw, Mason asked Esherick to illustrate Walt Whitmans Song of the Broad-Axe, which Mason published in a limited edtion in 1924. Inspired by the woodcuts, Esherick created a hand-bound prototype book of Whitmans poem, using prints made directly from his blocks and hand-lettering it in Eshericks own calligraphic style. Illuminated letters were used to begin paragraphs, and spaces at the end of lines were filled with blue and yellow drawings that reflect the content of the verses. The result of this labor of love was a work of art, 17 x 12 inches, with pages of handmade paper, folded and uncut. This book is a reproduction of Eshericks prototype, authorized by the Wharton Esherick Museum in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Though this edition is smaller than the prototype book, the original was carefully scanned and printed to provide as true a reproduction as possible. It faithfully captures the artists vision and skill and, for the first time, makes this wonderful work available to the general public. It will be appreciated by all admirers of Esherick, Whitman, and lovers of fine books.
