Jean Cocteau by Patrick Mauries
Book DescriptionPoet, novelist, dramatist, essayist, artist, illustrator and film producer, Jean Cocteau made art an integral part of his intensely creative life. In this personal view, Mauries concentrates on important and unusual aspects of Cocteau's life and work, considering the genius of place he exhibited throughout his life, the strange and mythical world he created and the enchantment that lies at the heart of each of his creations. This book is a tribute to the effervescent spirit and creative genius of one of the most original and versatile personalities of the 20th century.

Flora, Hardback (January 2017)
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.
Fashion Quotes, Hardback (September 2016)View all books by Patrick Mauries
The fashion world has long been celebrated for its scintillating salon wit. This book presents hundreds of the snappiest quotations from over three centuries, from the society beaux of the 18th century and the literary wits of the 19th century, to the celebrity elite of the 20th century and today's hippest twitterati.
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)
