Created with the full co-operation of Cartier, this exquisite book showcases the rich holdings of the Cartier Collection and archive. It features not only a sumptuous array of rings, bracelets, necklaces, and tiaras, but also cocktail and smoking accessories, mystery clocks and lavish objects created by Cartier's ateliers in Paris, London and New York. Organized thematically, the book features magnificent jewels and accessories owned by such arbiters of taste as Daisy Fellowes, the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Grace, Barbara Hutton and Elizabeth Taylor. Throughout, specially commissioned photographs of Cartier's legendary jewels are accompanied by vintage photographs - drawn from the Conde Nast and Cartier archives - of these royals, socialites and Hollywood stars in their Cartier finery, including work by Steichen, Horst, Beaton and Charbonneau.

Review:

"Glamorous and droolworthy 272-page history organized by theme in text and photos, with archival shots of Elizabeth Taylor and various royalty. In a slip box from The Vendome Press, in association with the Denver Art Museum." (The Associated Press)

"For anyone who appreciates good, hardbound books, exquisite photography, heritage, and all that has to do with fashion culture, 'Cartier in the 20th Century' is an easy buy.” (Selectism)

"This beautifully configured book, published in association with the Denver Art Museum, showcases the age's luxurious accouterments alongside vintage photographs." (Gear Patrol)

"Cartier in the 20th Century is an elegantly produced, beautifully photographed volume, that is a must have for anyone interested in the history of luxury goods, the intersection of fashion, culture and the decorative arts or how one firm, with creativity and innovation not only survived but thrived throughout the last century." (Quintessence)

“We all know Cartier’s little red box holds one large surprise, but this time it’s not what you’d expect...Flipping through Cartier in the 20th Century takes you to a world like no other.” (Worthy)

"There are few accessories that evoke the feeling of Old Hollywood glamour quite like jewelry, and few designers that do the accessories as well as Cartier." (InStyle.com)

“The book's stylish slipcase is actually an adaptation of a VOGUE cover, c. 1942, photographed by Horst. . . . The book itself echo's Cartier's red signature gift box—so it's really quite possible to "give Cartier" for Christmas.” (Little Augury)
