2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Southcoastsoothsayer on 19 Sept. 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Large format glossily produced book on this important avant-guarde jewellery designer by the experienced jewellery writer and historian Melissa Gabardi. It was occasioned by a 2009 Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, exhibition 'Bijoux Art Deco et Avant-Guarde - Jean Despres et les bijoutiers moderne' and is typical of the elaborate catalogues now produced for major exhibitions. It has presumably been translated from the French. Very comprehensive, many excellent photos, probably the last word on this important and influential designer, and a must for any jewellery library. Ian Harris, N.Bloom & Son

Superb Book About An Art Deco Genius. 3 Dec. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you're a fan of Art Deco design, you owe it to yourself to get this gorgeous book. Packed with beautiful photos of Despres' work, images of his design sketches, and fascinating period photos -I'm not sure I wouldn't have paid twice as much for this book. I'd give it 6 stars if that was an option...
