The pictures are of an exceptional quality and it's clear the author did her homework, well worth the slightly higher price tag.
Ms. Moro's encyclopedic knowledge, sweeping cultural overview and ability to accessibly contextualize her subject on such a grand scale.. c'est formidable! Her scholarship is impeccable. The richness of the material is unparalleled. Her fascinating life experience (a brief foray in the movie business as a Paramount contract player - google 'Ginger Hall'; her years as an antiquarian in Paris & London of the 60's; her personal interviews with artisans and celebrities) serves to establish her as both informed raconteur and intimate historian. Throughout this dense, dazzlingly pictorial overview, she weaves her tales with a wry wit and a knowing wink, brightly illuminating what might in other hands be a dry treatise, indeed.
If you can only buy one book on this subject, this is the one. When you get it, curl up with a good glass of wine and prepare to be transported to another world - with an enchanting personal guide who has been there, done that and come through it all with the cosmopolitan twinkle in her eyes intact. You won't be at all sorry!!
