the ultimate pucci book for the ultimate pucci collector 28 July 2000
By "puccigalore" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although a rather rare and pricey item to purchase, Pucci-A Renaissance in Fashion is definately worth the price if you are a hardcore Pucci collector, or even someone with money to burn who has just stumbled upon Emilio's colorful world. Printed and bound in Japan with a Pucci patterned cover, this book is collectible itself. As for the contents of the book, they definately do not fail to please even the most knowledgeable Pucci-head. Written by an obsessed fan, this book is a loving tribute to all things Pucci. It features Emilio history, descriptions and histories of the company and its many products, charming anecdotes of other collectors all detailed with millions of glorious photographs. These photos range from Pucci candy promos to full color full page ads. Here is your chance to stare for as long as you want at all the things you'll probably never be able to see or afford! All of this eye candy will have you drooling for hours. Despite the price, the euphoria you'll get is worth it.

Calling all Pucci aficionados 8 Feb. 2004
By Jl Metcalf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For the past decade, this has been deemed the definitive book on Italian fashion designer Emilio Pucci. Long out-of-print, the tome is in high demand and with good reason. You can judge this book by its cover - an actual Pucci fabric adorns the front and back hardbound covers.
Inside, 200 pages are graced with text, black-and-white, and color photos of the man himself and his brilliant, psychedelic, colorful creations. Shirley Kennedy does an admirable job of tracing his fashion designs back to the days when Mussolini's daughter was his lover in the 1940s. The book is an ideal mix of a novel -- giving the details of Pucci's life and tales behind his fashions - and a highly illustrated repertoire of his designs. Photographs include celebrities wearing his creations: Jacqueline Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Isaac Hayes, Marisa Berenson, among others. There are Pucci's designs for the limited edition of the 1977 Ford Continental automobile, the famous Braniff flight attendant uniforms, his unique conical hats of the 1950s, vases, ski outfits, and much more.
This book is highly recommended for Pucci fans of all levels, from new fans to diehard admirers of his gorgeous designs.

A Visually Spectacular Romp 2 Aug. 2007
By Actuspurus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wrapped in authentic Pucci fabric with stunning images and text, Kennedy's Pucci: A Renaissance in Fashion takes one on a trip through the designs of Emilio Pucci and the Pucci clad international jet-set. This is a book that would be a must for any design maven, fashionista, or any individual fascinated by the exotic world of the international sixties as told from a latter twentieth century perspective. A definite keeper.
