Marie Art Deco - Jade, from Emperors to Art Deco
Jade, from Emperors to Art

Marie Art Deco

Over 200 works—drawn from prestigious French and international collections, including some of the most magnificient masterpieces from the Chinese imperial collections—here recreate the epic story of the history and aesthetics of jade. From the dawn of Chinese civilization, when it became imbued with its quintessential qualities, to the 1920s, when this stone "more precious than gold" became the source of inspiration for modernist jewelry and objets d'art, the authoritative essays and superb illustrations contained in these pages lift the veil on the history of this quintessential expression of Chinese culture. "The gentleman of Antiquity found the likeness of all excellent qualities in jade. Warm, smooth and glossy, it appeared to them like benevolence. Fine, compact and strong, like intelligence. Its radiance rising as a rainbow, like heaven. Its spirit appearing in the mountains and streams, like earth" —Confucius

Marie Art Deco - Art Deco Mailboxes: An Illustrated Design History
Art Deco Mailboxes: An Illustrated Design

Marie Art Deco

A great gift book for lovers of unsung urban decorative art and unique architectural details.Mailboxes and their chutes were once as essential to the operation of any major hotel, office, civic, or residential building as the front door. In time they developed a decorative role, in a range of styles and materials, and as American art deco architecture flourished in the 1920s and 1930s they became focal points in landmark buildings and public spaces: the GE Building, Grand Central Terminal, the Woolworth Building, 29 Broadway, the St. Regis Hotel, York & Sawyer’s Salmon Tower, the Waldorf Astoria, and many more.While many mailboxes have been removed, forgotten, disused, or painted over (and occasionally repurposed), others are still in use, are polished daily, and hold a place of pride in lobbies throughout the country.A full-color photographic survey of beautiful early mailboxes, highlighting those of the grand art deco period, together with a brief history of the innovative mailbox-and-chute system patented in 1883 by James Cutler of Rochester, New York, Art Deco Mailboxes features dozens of the best examples of this beloved, dynamic design’s realization in the mailboxes of New York City as well as Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and beyond. 150 color illust...

Not all Christening Sharing Guest Books are created equal. Finally, there is a guest book with user friendly fonts and layout. After seeing too many guest books with tiny fonts, thin signature lines and petite dimensions, I realized that there are no rules for guest books. As a result, I created a guest book with larger fonts, roomier comment lines and a larger than average book size. It is now easier for guests to share words of wisdom, advice for parents, and personal reflections. As a bonus feature I added space for creative guests who like to express themselves beyond the limitations of words and the constraints of lines. Consider having a few of the sharing books available so several guests can write at the same time. There is also a companion Christening Guest Book (Volume 10) available for guests to quickly leave their name and brief notes. Enjoy this Christening Sharing Guest Book and the enchanting comments your guests will leave behind!

Marie Art Deco - Alphonse Mucha: The Spirit of Art Nouveau
Alphonse Mucha: The Spirit of Art

Marie Art Deco

Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was one of the most important decorative artists working in Paris at the turn of the century. His distinctive and original posters and his decorative panels in le style Mucha became almost synonymous with French Art Nouveau. The admirer and iconographer of Sarah Bernhardt, he was also well known as the creator of familiar advertisements and as a book illustrator. Yet there was much more to Mucha’s achievement than this. At the height of his career as a decorative artist, he became convinced that art should serve ideas, he became chief artistic and cultural adviser to the interwar Czech government, and he completed a major and controversial fresco cycle, the Slav Epic, as well as portraits and large symbolic paintings.This book―the first full-scale treatment of Mucha’s entire oeuvre―includes discussions and reproductions of paintings, posters, panneaux decoratifs, pastels, drawings, and illustrations from throughout his career. In addition, the authors provide essays on Mucha’s Paris years; his association with Sarah Bernhardt; the importance of American patronage on his later work; his graphic and painterly techniques; and the problems connected with the conservation of the large canvases. This lavishly illustrated book is the catalogue for an...
