As an introduction to Hermes Scarves and the House of Hermes, this book is excellent. It gives a limited overview of the history and developement of the Hermes Scarf.I particularly liked the section showing the overlapping method of printing the colours and designs of the scarves. The heavy quality of the paper lends itself to good reproduction of the scarf designs.
I was disappointed by the limited numbers of photos of older designs, as the majority of the designs illustrated seem to be more modern. I suppose I was hoping for more of a catalogue of designs, chronologically ordered with more information about the designers too. I had hoped for a selection of designs by the same artist, showing their design choices and developement of the various themes.
Perhaps these ideas will be incorporated into Book 2.
All in all, a good book at a reasonable price. Thanks Amazon.
