As a Mucha fan I both like and hate this book. My first initial reaction to the first two pages was disgust! The two "Dolls" are not at all Mucha. In fact, they are an INSULT to Mucha's graceful women. Ventura's depiction of is an overly glam-up woman. In the book's summary, they described Mucha's woman as volumptious. Maybe so, but that is not at all the word to descibe Mucha's women. By the use of that word, the true essence of Mucha is lost. The great thing about Mucha is that he was able to combine grace and beauty with sensuality and intrigue. Ventura's take is sexy and forward, typical fashion design drawings. Ventura also chooses to leave out one of Mucha's most famous design, Gismonda. My guess - Sarah Bernhardt's dress is too loose and does not reveal any part of her body but the hands and face. All the drawings of Ventura are tighter and more chest-enhancing than Mucha's true beautiful drawings. BUT I give Ventura credit. When you ignore the "dolls," you can admire Ventura's eye for detail of the costumes used in Mucha's designs. It's actually exciting to recognize the dress from a favorite print. For the price of this book, this makes a great reference for Costume Design and Mucha!
