Books Info:

The Art of Bulgari free pdf Since its founding in Rome in 1884, Bulgari has become synonymous with ingenuity and luxury in jewellery design. This volume focuses on the 1950s through the 1980s - a period of eclectic creativity that helped to establish the signature Bulgari look and its status in the world of celebrity and high society. Along with a history of the jeweller, the book features approximately 150 pieces from this pivotal period. High-quality photographs of the objects share the spotlight with sketches, photographs and vintage advertisements from the Bulgari archives, as well as images of the celebrities who adorned themselves with these opulent works, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren. An introduction by Martin Chapman examines Bulgari in an American context, focusing on its famous clients and social history. An essay by Amanda Triossi provides a deeper look at Bulgari - its founding, history, designers, and innovations. Section introductions for the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s illuminate the trends in jewellery design for each decade, in addition to a chapter dedicated to the legendary Elizabeth Taylor collection.
