Flowers have long been a source of inspiration for jewelers, many of whom have sought to capture their transient beauty in glittering gemstones and precious metals. In this book, the floral pieces have all been selected from the magnificent jewelry collection of the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and range from the 17th century onwards.

UK Kirkus Review » Born in 1889, Jean Cocteau began his creative career as a writer, later becoming a filmmaker and producing poems, essays, paintings and drawings. The author portrays Cocteau as a controversial figure, often the target of right-wing critics. Intrigued by the transcience of fashion, his graphic style was influenced by Picasso, whom he knew. The book features a wide selection of illustrations and includes a chronology. (Kirkus UK)
