-- Shock of the Old Christopher Dresser's Design Revolution V&A Museum, 2004. Hardcover with dusjacket, 240 pages 26,7 x 21,6 x 2,5 cm Illustrated. ISBN: 9780810966581 Published in conjunction with Christopher Dresser's first comprehensive museum retrospective, organized by Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, then traveling to the Victoria and Albert Museum, this extensively illustrated survey affirms his achievement as the first professional industrial designer - in effect, the inventor of the modern-day career of product designer. Dresser (1837-1904) trained both as a designer and a botanist, deriving his design vocabulary initially from observations of nature. As the first European designer to visit Japan in an official capacity, he made comprehensive study of Japanese art during his four-month visit. The experience confirmed his belief in the supremacy of form over ornament and resulted in designs that were truly radical in relation to contemporary Victorian taste. Dresser was also a pioneer in his vision of industry as a means to spread the tenets of good design, working with over fifty manufacturers in a wide variety of media to produce an astonishing range of reasonably priced, widely available consumer goods. Seven essays from leading specialists in the field explore the impact of Christopher Dresser's theories and work in the context of his contemporaries such as Pugin, Owen Jones, and Godwin. His achievement is seen in relation to the late industrial revolution and the development of modern design. The 300 illustrations illuminate the vast scope of his output, from Gothic-Revival cast-iron Coalbrookdale hall stands and the stark, geometric forms of James Dixon & Sons silver plate to the experimental and highly innovative shapes and glazes of Linthorpe ceramics. The catalogue also features previously unattributed designs for textiles, wallpaper and glass, and expands the sum of Dresser scholarship into new and illuminating areas.

-- Tinnen stadskannen geboekstaafd Tinnen stadskannen in de Lage Landen Stichting Nederlandse Tinbibliotheek, 2016. Gebonden, Hardcover met prachtige illustraties. Het gebruik om iemand mild te stemmen met een goede gave is van alle tijden. Wat de een profijt brengt, kan de ander tot voordeel strekken. Stadsbesturen realiseerden zich dat ook. Van de late middeleeuwen tot in de 18de eeuw lieten zij tinnen kannen maken, die, gevuld met wijn, werden aangeboden aan invloedrijke bezoekers. Over deze tinnen stadskannen verhaalt dit smaakvolle boek. Het vertelt uitgebreid hoe stadskannen werden gemaakt en wanneer, hoe en door wie ze werden gebruikt. Uiteraard wordt ook stilgestaan bij de inhoud van het tinnen schenkgerei: de zogenoemde presentwijnen. Alle 81 bewaard gebleven stadskannen in de Noordelijke en Zuidelijke Nederlanden passeren de revue -overzichtelijk ingedeeld per stad. De achttien stadskannen van Maastricht, de twaalf van Oudenaarde, de afwijkende exemplaren uit Enkhuizen, de gestolen stadskannen van Woerden: ze zijn stuk voor stuk geportretteerd in woord en beeld. Verder aandacht voor stadskannen van buiten de Lage Landen, vervalsingen, tinnegietersmerken, stijlen en dateringen, en het verschil tussen stadskannen en ?gewone? schenkkannen. Tal van historische illustraties en Duitse, Franse en Engelse samenvattingen maken deze uitgave compleet. Booknumber: 49759 | Price: EUR 25.00 Add to cart

Text in English and German. . ISBN: 9783925369766 Friedrich Becker was a goldsmith of world renown and undoubtedly one of the most outstanding artistic personalities of our day, truly altering the course of goldsmiths' work in the latter half of the 20th century. Becker was the creator of kinetic jewellery and well known as a sculptor and designer. His work is collected by many major museums and has featured in inumerable exhibitions. The purity of form in his work laid the foundations for a new aesthetic style in jewelllery. Stemming from his preoccupation with precision, he combined high standards of workmanship with a supreme sublety. In his jewellery "wearable" art was born. The book focuses on the extraordinary genius of Becker, a master craftsman and mentor, who would have welcomed this exploration of his work to inspire artists and art historians alike. A fascinating survey of the versatile creativity of the artist, who as an internationally acknowledged gold jeweller and designer of kinetic jewellery left his mark on the goldsmithery of the second half of the 20th century.

Barbara Mass, Anna Schetelich, Wolfram Otto. Petra Zimmermann: Jewellery / Schmuck. Stuttgart, Arnoldsche Art Publishers, 2011. Flexibinding, 128pp., 21.5x29cm., illustr. troughout, new. German / English text. ISBN: 9783897903463 Petra Zimmermann occupies a unique position among emerging contemporary jewellery artists: she shares their exciting approach to the subject of jewellery and the quotable adoption of the pop culture label for defining the auteur jewellery concept in which she succeeds, this time through historical reference. The artist draws on past encounters with costume jewellery from the previous century for her rings, bracelets and brooches. Comprised of bright, colourful synthetic forms, these objects receive a framework in which their artificial appearance contrasts to the dusty splendour of the historic costume jewellery. Beguiling pieces of jewellery emerge, which combine the present fascination for glamour with an element of progression, thus referencing the costume jewellery as an essential component in the production and construction of glamour in the portrait photography of the Hollywood diva. In her latest series of works, the artist uses mass media images of models, floral motifs, architecture and design objects which broaden her scope of cultural and social interpretations. Thus behind the visual opulence of her work, she succeeds in handling relevant aesthetic and social themes in her pieces; relevant for a generation that no longer struggles against traditional conventions, but that negotiates much more in an increasingly complex environment in the search for personal and historical coherence.

Beth Bernstein If These Jewels Could Talk The Legends Behind Celebrity Gems ACC Art Books, 2015. Size: 290 mm x 237 mm Pages: 256 Illustrations: 216 colour, 64 b&w
Hardback. ISBN: 9781851498079
The stories behind the great celebrity jewellery collections Featuring the jewels of Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Jackie Kennedy and many more Chapters on the great collectors of old, and the new celebrity collectors of today Throughout the 20th century, jewellery revealed the behind-the-scenes stories and the plot twists and turns in the real lives of celebrities that will always be larger than life. Some of the world's most fabulous jewels not only illustrated power and status in society but these magical gems held tremendous sentimental value as they were linked to the most significant moments and memories of Hollywood royalty, international aristocracy and international icons of style. If These Jewels Could Talk offers a glimpse into the jewellery boxes of these celebrities - the personal tastes, heartfelt anecdotes and the true tales of the women who wore and collected the pieces. During the early- to mid-20th century, a majority of screen actresses requested to wear their own favourite pieces in films. This offered a peek into some of the great jewellers of the time who were designing for women who could choose anything. Actresses such as Merle Oberon, Paulette Goddard, Joan Crawford, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor as well as icons such as Jackie Kennedy and The Duchess of Windsor created signature styles for which they became known and which influenced generations of women, becoming part of our collective consciousness. The 20s through the 50s were a time when the renowned jewellery houses were also celebrities in their own right. They mixed with the socialites and royalty they bejewelled. In films, jewellery clearly developed and defined a character's personality - as it did in real life - whether it be a rags-to-riches story or those that figured into the plot: for example, a Cartier bracelet in Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, or a Harry Winston necklace in Notorious. Whether on or off screen, worn by the famed and the legendary, and designed by the most revered houses of the day, all of these jewels take us on a narrative journey that provide fascinating insight into the intriguing worlds of early Hollywood and nobility from the 1920s through to today.
