It is exactly what you want it to be, and then some. All the images are in HQ and full detail. It is a collection made of the best which Cartier has to offer, throughout its glorious history and heritage.
Love cruising this collection.
Cartier is famous for their creations and the book shows why.
Beautiful color pictures. I would never get to see any of his creations,
but I feel like I have now, Thank you
Chapman comes with a background of curation - for exhibitions at the Legion of Honor and currently for the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.
Beautifully assembled and stunningly photographed pieces fall into an order much like walking through a museum exhibition with a knowledgeable docent.
Viewing includes Cartier Original Designs (I only wish that the names of the actual studio designer were included), Cartier Acquisitions (ie the Taylor Burton Diamond) and Cartier Alterations (as with the Taylor Burton Diamond where they changed the setting from a ring to a pendant). All accompanied by the provenance of each piece.
Brilliant - great for reference, inspiration, dreaming and even coffee table viewing...100% worth every penny!
