5.0 out of 5 stars This book is almost as glamorous as the eggs!
Rarely have I picked up a book and been so overwhelmingly impressed! Faberge eggs are glamorous and beautiful and this book matches them for 'wow factor'.

Each egg in the book is illustrated in full colour - one egg per page! On the opposite page to each photograph is a description of the egg, the date of it's manufacture, who created it and who it was for...

2.0 out of 5 stars Over priced
Having looked at new prices for this book 85.95 and 122.53, I was expecting a very fine book.

However I paid 19.99 plus only to find the new price of the book printed on the inside of the dust jacket of 22.40 ($35) and was disappointed .

This review is from: Faberge Eggs: Masterpieces from Czarist Russia (Hardcover)
Rarely have I picked up a book and been so overwhelmingly impressed! Faberge eggs are glamorous and beautiful and this book matches them for 'wow factor'.

Each egg in the book is illustrated in full colour - one egg per page! On the opposite page to each photograph is a description of the egg, the date of it's manufacture, who created it and who it was for originally. A few of the eggs have two full page illustrations each so that it's beauty can be seen in glorious close-up or with it's surprise opened out for extra clarity.

If I was to be picky I'd say I was disappointed with the photo of the Siberian Railway Egg because the egg itself is over ten inches in height and whilst the page is ample big enough to hold a full-size illustration, the egg is shown much reduced in size. Okay the reason is that the little model of the train that came with it is shown in detail so I suppose you can't have everything. As I said, I'm being picky.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you want a touch of true glamour and luxury on your coffee table, then this is the book to get.
