GORGEOUS- Part One

Shells Book- TaschenYou might have noticed I am having a love affair with Taschen these days (first it was the Simple Diary’s, then Taschen’s New York (one left!) and now this new release, Dezallier d’Argenville, Shells with GORGEOUS drawings from the 18th century French Courtier, Antoine-Joseph Dezallier d’Argenville. Taschen’s complete reprint of these 80 splendid hand-colored copper engraved plates, rendered in exquisite detail and the subtlest colors, is taken from one of the finest original copies. It is a lovely coffee table book, especially during the summer months, but part of me wants to chop it all up and wallpaper my bathroom with it. Either way, it’s a Must Have. $39.99.

Gorgeous Part Two Tomorrow- Get Excited!!
