Just open it and you you will make treasure forever of a quote from Guy De Rotschild-"Man is capable of marvelous inventions,but sometimes he forgets to breathe life into them"
The book steps back in time to a period where people spent weeks preparing for parties and showed up in costumes that rival any modern day opera. It is filled with inspiration for designers and people interested in that period in time. The book is very large - more of a 'coffee-table' size. It comes in a cardboard pocket.
The only reason my rating is not 5 stars is that ,when I placed my order for this book - probably because of the weight- I received a few copies with crushed sides, before I finally got a 'clean' copy.
The book is a definite 5 stars plus, the packaging would be 2 stars less.
If you love disappearing into a lost time of beauty and imagination, this is the book for you.
the interesting people of the time. Highly recommend.
