Description:
Commissioned to make protective bookbindings by French fashion designer and book collector Jacques Doucet, designers Pierre Legrain and Rose Adler single-handedly propelled their craft into a new category of art. An astonishing blend of creativity and craftsmanship, their vibrant, remarkably detailed bindings for classic works of literature by Colette, Verlaine, and Gide set a standard of quality many claim is unsurpassed to this day. This gorgeous book, the catalog for a 2004 exhibition of their work held at the New York Public Library, includes essays and fantastic color photography of more than sixty of their most beautiful bindings.
