She also had one sister named Eva. Leiber was sent to King's College London in 1938 by her family to study chemistry for the cosmetics industry, in part since her father thought she would be safer in London in the case of a war.She returned to Hungary before World War II, where thanks to family connections, obtained a traineeship at a handbag company, where she learned to cut and mold leather, make patterns, frame and stitch bags. She was the first woman graduated to master craftswoman, becoming the first woman to join the Hungarian Handbag Guild in Budapest.She avoided Nazi persecution when she escaped the Holocaust of World War II to the safety of a house set aside for Swiss citizens, when her father, a Hungarian Jew who managed the grain department of a bank, was able to obtain a Swiss schutzpass, a document that gave the bearer safe passage. This pass is on view at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC. In that flat where Leiber survived the war, housed 26 people.In December 1944, those living in the apartment were taken to one of the Hungarian Nazi-run ghettos. After the liberation of Hungary by the Red Army, Leiber's family moved into a basement with 60 other people.In 1946, she married Gerson (Gus) Lieber, was a sergeant in the United States Army serving in Eastern Europe, whom she met while making purses for the secretaries of the American Legation in Budapest, and moved to New York City in 1947. Her husband Leiber is an abstract expressionist painter, member of the National Academy of Design, with some of his works displayed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Museum, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, and other institutions.After working as a handbag designer for other companies, Leiber founded her own business in 1963.Leiber is famous for her crystal minaudières, evening purses made of a metal shell often encrusted with Swarovski crystals, plated with silver or gold and with various forms, such as baby pigs, slices of watermelon, cupcakes, peacocks, penguins, and snakes. Sold at exclusive boutiques around the world, her purses may cost up to several thousand dollars and have become a status symbol for many women, including several Presidential First Ladies, to which she has given them as a present, from Mamie Eisenhower to Barbara Bush and Hillary Clinton. Animals are a recurring theme in her designed, and often the most expensive purses of the collection with prices on some animal shaped minaudières exceeding US$7,000. They have become a sought-after fashion item, being collected by wealthy women. Bernice Norman, an arts patron in New Orleans, owns close to 300 of the Leiber bags.In 1994, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers. Classic examples of her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia has had a gallery of her work on display since it opened in 2008. She retired in 1998. In September 2008, she was rated the most prestigious luxury handbag brand for the second year running by the New York-based Luxury Institute. In 2010, Leiber received a Visionary Woman Award from Moore College of Art & Design.Recently, Leiber has started buying back her purses to have them all displayed at a museum, the Leiber Museum, located on Long Island, which she has been preparing and curating.A Judith Leiber cupcake minaudiere was featured in the Sex and the City movie.A biography of Leiber and her husband, modernist artist Gerson Leiber, was published in 2010. Entitled No Mere Bagatelles, it was written by Jeffrey Sussman. Mr. Sussman has also written the catalogue copy for numerous exhibitions at the Leiber Museum. Exhibitions for which he has written the catalogues include one for Judith Leiber's handbags, one for an exhibition of antique Chinese porcelains, and one for the print work of the American artist Will Barnet.The Judith Leiber boutiques are exclusive as there are only four in the world. They are located in New Delhi, Jakarta, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. However, some of her collection is available at selected fashion stores like Neiman Marcus, Harvey Nichols, Lane Crawford, Holt Renfrew and Harrods., Heritage Auctions, 2015, Images Publishing Dist A/C, 2006-07-07.

Though Miranda Graham is a savvy, successful fashion designer, she's never set foot outside the U.S. As a widow and a mom, she has cleaved to the familiarity of her Boulder, Colorado, home. So when business sends her to China, Miranda reels from profound culture shock. Luckily, kind Yuan Li takes the frightened visitor under his wing and offers to be her tour guide. As Miranda adapts to chopsticks and crowded streets, she finds Li has appealing qualities beyond his perfect English and natural hospitality. A Renaissance man as well as a businessman, Li opens Miranda's heart to the countless treasures of China. With newfound courage, Miranda finds herself falling into deep, passionate love with this man whom she hardly knows. The looming deadline for her return and the threatening disapproval of a fading communist state force these lovers to make the most of their glorious time together. Bestselling author Judith Michael has situated this familiar midlife coming of age tale in a truly unique location. Colorful descriptions of Chinese culture and atmosphere will certainly infect some readers with the travel bug. But while Miranda's character is well-developed and likable, Li's borders on stereotypical, and at times the threats to their relationship seem artificial. However, in the context of a "perfect love, imperfect world" story, these faults are entirely forgivable, and the overall story line is very entertaining.--Nancy R.E. O'Brien --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly An exotic locale, a hint of danger, a dollop of fashion, a soup?on of Confucian philosophy and a big dose of clashing cultures add up to tasty if unoriginal chop suey in the latest novel from the bestselling husband and wife writing team. Miranda Grant, a 40-year-old widow with two adolescent children, travels from her home in Boulder, Colo., to Beijing. Petite (size four) Miranda is, on the one hand, shy, fearful and mousy, and, on the other, artistic, creative and hungry for change. Her visit... read more --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Book Description Judith Michael's trademark storytelling verve has won this husband-and-wife team an audience of millions. Their tenth novel, A Certain Smile, is a bittersweet story of a perfect but impossible love. Miranda Graham, a clothing designer and the widowed mother of two teenagers, travels to China to work with the factories that will produce her designs. At first overwhelmed by the chaotic foreignness of China, she soon discovers what she never expected or would have believed possible: a passionate, all-consuming love. Yuan Li, son of a Chinese mother and an American soldier, survived Cultural Revolution and now owns a successful construction company. Li and Miranda spend every available moment together, until an intrusive Chinese government, corrupt businessmen, and Li's wildly ambitious son test their love in the complex crucible of politics, and family loyalties. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. <br/><br/> 03-30-16, Ballantine Books, 2000, Fashion Angels Enterprises.

Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear; The designs in Loop-d-Loop (for women, men, children, and the home) are fresh, modern, and eclectic, especially appealing to young knitters who like to set tradition askew and claim knitting as their own. At the same time, they are not so trendy as to turn off more traditional and/or older knitters, and the technical applications are so clever and unique that even advanced knitters are fascinated by them. Most of the designs - even those that may look complex--are actually fairly easy to create, providing gratifying learning and artistic experiences as well as fast results. Because of the strong technical nature of Loop-d-Loop, it is poised to last much longer than a simple collection of fashionable patterns and to become a standard reference within the knitting community., Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2005-05-01, United Kingdom: Laurence King Publishers, 2008.

This major trend is especially popular in footwear. Customizing your own shoes is a way of stepping out of the crowd, of showing your personality. Just about every sneaker brand has found a way to put street art into their products; rain boots have never been more hip; and there are even customize festivals and exhibitions. By inviting 150 artists and illustrators to show/create customized shoes the book will appeal not only to sneaker freaks, fashion fetishists, and trend watchers, but also to the graphic design and art audience. The main focus is on the artwork but the text examines the trend and asks: How did it start? What materials do the artists use?"

St Marylebone Society Publication No. 4; Scattered throughout the cathedrals and parish churches, the colleges and country houses of England, are the works of the sculptor John Bacon. Famous in his own day, he is now almost forgotten, though he was a fine sculptor, one of the first Royal Academicians and the protégé and friend of George III. For twenty-five years of well-earned and well-established success, he lived and worked at 17, Newman Street, in the south-east corner of St. Marylebone. From his workshop there came the nation's marble tributes to her heroes; he modelled the features of the statesmen, soldiers and scholars of his day; he designed and executed statues and adornments for the new buildings that were rising throughout the country; there he carved hundreds of monuments to humbler people whose kinsfolk mourned them. Indeed, his work marks the apogee of the monumentalist's work in England. The passage of time, changes in taste and fashion, have almost obliterated all memory of his career as dust has overlain the products of his chisel. Yet he deserves to he remembered, both as an artist and a man. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 47 pages. minor mark to rear cover. Previous owner's book-plate laid in.

This admirable volume is excellent value with its impeccable text and numerous illustrations."--Journal of the Royal Society of Arts From the simple shell beads worn by Palaeolithic hunters to the splendor of Renaissance gold work and the sumptuousness of Art Nouveau enamels, here is a fascinating and informative guide to the development of Western jewelry--concluding with the radical and experimental developments in the last three decades. Offering a concise survey of the entire field, this book analyzes jewelry's changing fashions, explores its social context, and examines how it has been worn by both men and women. It shows how jewellers have responded to new sources of gems, whether emeralds from the New World or diamonds from South Africa, and to the discovery of metals such as platinum and aluminum. Masterworks by unknown craftsmen and pieces designed by individual artists as diverse as Holbein, Pugin and Calder are illustrated alongside the glittering products of the major jewelry houses. 174 illustrations, 54 in color., Thames & Hudson, 1996, Denmark 1984.

Mehndi, the ancient Indian art of henna design, is the hottest accessory sported by today's fashion world.

Now, Sumita Batra, mehndi artist to the stars, brings the definitive guide to this 3,000-year-old art form of body painting. Among her many clients is Madonna, who asked Sumita Batra to decorate her hands and face for the 1998 MTV Video Awards ceremony. The Art of Mehndi delves into the history and symbolism of the art as well as mehndi in the fashion world of the 90s, and offers practical instruction on how to make and apply henna paste.

Lucien Lelong was a central figure in French fashion from the 1920s to the 1950s, and his designs were in many ways precursors of contemporary fashion shapes and developments. Noted for his skill, exquisite workmanship, and beautiful fabrics, Lelong and his house promoted a fluid, minimalist, elegant look. Lelong blended modern design with a strong business sense and was influential for both his fashions and his entrepreneurship. He was one of the earliest designers to diversify into lingerie, accessories, and perfumes, and in 1934 he introduced a luxury ready-to-wear line. During the Occupation in World War II, he was instrumental in persuading the Germans to allow French couture houses to remain in Paris rather than moving to Berlin.This wonderfully illustrated history of Lelong and his house chronicles the period and its leading personalities, artists, and designers. Lelong's clients included Colette, Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, and Rose Kennedy; Balmain, Dior, and Givenchy apprenticed with him; and Horst, Beaton, Hoyningen Huene, Man Ray, and Lee Miller photographed his models. The first book devoted to this influential twentieth-century French couturier. DJ has minor scratching, Thames & Hudson, Penguin Press, February 2015. Hardcover. New. More than two decades ago, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen arrived on the fashions scene when the business was in an artistic and economic rut. Both wanted to revolutionize fashion in a way no one had in decades. They shook the establishment out of its bourgeois, minimalist stupor with daring, sexy designs. They turned out landmark collections in mesmerizing, theatrical shows that retailers and critics still gush about and designers continue to reference. <BR> Their approach to fashion was wildly different--Galliano began as an illustrator, McQueen as a Savile Row tailor. Galliano led the way with his sensual bias-cut gowns and his voluptuous hourglass tailoring, which he presented in romantic storybook-like settings. McQueen, though nearly ten years younger than Galliano, was a brilliant technician and a visionary artist who brought a new reality to fashion, as well as an otherworldly beauty. For his first official collection at the tender age of twenty-three, McQueen did what few in fashion ever achieve: he invented a new silhouette, the Bumster. <BR> They had similar backgrounds: sensitive, shy gay men raised in tough London neighborhoods, their love of fashion nurtured by their doting mothers. Both struggled to get their businesses off the ground, despite early critical success. But by 1997, each had landed a job as creative director for couture houses owned by French tycoon Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH. <BR> Galliano's and McQueen's work for Dior and Givenchy and beyond not only influenced fashion; their distinct styles were also reflected across the media landscape. With their help, luxury fashion evolved from a clutch of small, family-owned businesses into a $280 billion-a-year global corporate industry. Executives pushed the designers to meet increasingly rapid deadlines. For both Galliano and McQueen, the pace was unsustainable. In 2010, McQueen took his own life three weeks before his womens' wear show. <BR> The same week that Galliano was fired, 'Forbes' named Arnault the fourth richest man in the world. Two months later, Kate Middleton wore a McQueen wedding gown, instantly making the house the world's most famous fashion brand, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened a wildly successful McQueen retrospective, cosponsored by the corporate owners of the McQueen brand. The corporations had won and the artists had lost. <BR> In her groundbreaking work 'Gods and Kings,' acclaimed journalist Dana Thomas tells the true story of McQueen and Galliano. In so doing, she reveals the revolution in high fashion in the last two decades--and the price it demanded of the very ones who saved it. Book has red remainder mark on text edge.

No writing or tears. Tight spine, clean pages. Foreword by Diane Von Furstenberg., Clarkson Potter, 2010, New York: Cooper-Heweitt National Design Museum , 1983. 129 Pages Indexed. Tan and maroon boards with gold embossed lettering to spine and front and endpapers illustrated with miniatures. No marks or stamps. Interior is flawless. Fashioning objects on a small scale has been the impetus for the miniaturist's art from the time of the earliest civilizations. Some four thousand years ago, Egyptian pharaohs were buried with hundreds of meticulously realistic scaled-down figures, all intended to serve the dead as efficiently as the full-size models had done in life. The tradition of verisimilitude has remained important to miniaturists. Extraordinary realism was captured in the baby houses crafted in Bavaria in the sixteenth century, an accomplishment repeated in seventeenth and eighteenth-century Holland, where dollhouses displayed the finest of diminutive furnishings: blue-and-white porcelain, silken fabrics and furniture of exotic woods. In France a corps of artisans crafted tiny furniture, thus leaving us a legacy of objects every bit as luxurious as the larger pieces produced using the same techniques. But it was in America in the nineteenth century that the production of doll houses soared, and collectors today can find houses in myriad styles reflecting the regional variations of American architecture. The challenge of creating a doll house of unsurpassed realism was not met until the twentieth century, when several hundred poets, artists and craftsmen in England joined Sir Edwin Lutyens in constructing a truly royal doll house for their beloved Queen Mary. It boasts running water, electric lights, working plumbing and countless other niceties. And in America, Mrs. James Ward Thome called on a team of craftsmen and artists to create ninety-seven scale models of characteristic interiors from various periods and locales, models so realistic that it is impossible to tell from a photograph whether the room is miniature or life size. Miniature books constitute yet another category of interest to collectors. Typographers working to produce miniature volumes learned to cut a type called fly's eye -- so tiny that it required a magnifying glass to read it. While fine type helps make a miniature book precious, exquisitely detailed illustrations, along with handsome bindings, have been used to distinguish noble examples of small-scale volumes. The final chapter provides advice for the collector, stressing that most fine miniature objects should be approached, treated and appreciated in much the same way as their full-size counterparts. A glossary, a list of public collections, and a bibliography are included.

In this dazzling novel that captures the essence of Coco Chanel, the story of her magnificent life is told-from her beginnings as a mere seamstress to her ultimate triumph as one of the most famous and imitated designers of all time. Coco, legendary not only for her revolutionary and trendsetting fashions, hut also for her torrid love affairs with grand dukes, celebrated artists, and rogues alike, was a woman unafraid to follow her genius-or her heart. Irresistibly drawn to her were those whose destinies would intertwine with hers ... men and women who would revel in the hypnotic, often forbidden intimacies that only Coco could offer. For of all her insatiable needs, the one that would propel Coco with the greatest force was her desperate craving for that which elude her most: enduring love.

The story of a day in the life of a household dog,as humorously told by the dog. The dog's day and story starts at 7am  continuing up to "lights out" at 10:15pm,as told by the lively Airedale Terrier.He thwarts a burglar,gets a bath,wrestles a rug, upsets a canary,gets a bone from the kitchen,etc. A truly charming little book.         Few people can fail to be charmed,and cheered,by Cecil Aldin's mischievious dogs or puppies.They were among the stars of a series of eagerly-awaited books issued each year in time for Christmas in the decade before the 1914-18 war and whose escapades delighted a generation of children.Now,in a special edition,they join the other reissued Aldin classics 'A Dog Day' and 'Sleeping Partners'.                       Aldin's sense of fun shines from every line.He based his drawings on real puppies, real dogs,so that they never became mere caricatures.Anyone who knows dogs will feel a sense of affinity with Aldin's depiction of these canine scallywags,portrayed by the finest of all dog illustrators.                                                               Cecil Charles Windsor Aldin (1870-1935) Worked as Cecil Aldin.Born in Slough, Berkshire,son of a successful speculative builder.After a month in the studio of the 'classical-aesthetic' painter Albert Moore,he studied animal anatomy at the South Kensington School of Art,and later worked under the animal painter Frank Calderon. [See my book ID rja449913 - ANIMAL PAINTING & ANATOMY [The New Art Library 2nd Series - Vol  XVIII].                                                                      Aldin achieved early success as a comic illustrator,contributing to numerous periodicals during the 1890s,and designing posters (for Cadburys,in particular).He lived in Chelsea,then at Bedford Park, where a flourishing artists' colony included his friends Dudley Hardy and Lance Thackeray,then moved to Henley-on-Thames where he became Master of Foxhounds in 1914.He retired to Mallorca in 1930.       Sharing the values and aspirations of a wide audience,he achieved immense popularity,evoking the English dream of Life in the Country in a relaxed and easy graphic style.As well as hunting scenes (in which he largely avoided the suggestion of mud and raw weather so insistently present in the work of his sporting artist contemporary G.D. Armour),he specialised in delicately shaded drawings of country inns,in cheerful olde worlde scenes and canine subjects,particularly dog-portraits, the best of which are the humorous ones.In these,it was said,he 'captured the very soul of a dog'.                                                                                              Roy Heron,Aldin's biographer,is a former Fleet Street editor.His books include 'Cecil Aldin,The Story of a Sporting Artist'; The Sporting Art of Cecil Aldin' and,in France, 'Cecil Aldin et les chiens'.                                                                             Since April 2013 and again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices,weight allowances, dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk,because of the lighter weight of this item for correct shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!, UK,OXFORD.PAST TIMES,1995., TATE PUBLISHING, 2010 VG. softcover. clean crisp condition. no bumps or wear . as new. clean and bright copy The British painter Chris Ofili was born in Manchester in 1968 and is one of the most notable painters of his generation. He lives and works in London and Trinidad. Ofili's best-known works are complex and highly decorative canvases, built up from layers of paint combined with other materials including sequins, glitter, map pins and images cut from magazines. Their subject matter often refers to his Nigerian heritage and the wider African American and Afro-Caribbean experience, making reference to sources as diverse as Zimbabwean cave paintings, blaxploitation movies, comic books, funk and hip-hop album covers, pornography and the Bible. A trademark element in his paintings has been his use of varnished elephant dung, sometimes decorated with map pins, either as a support for the paintings or applied directly to the canvas. Ofili's painting "The Holy Virgin Mary" caused controversy when it arrived in Brooklyn in 1999 as part of the exhibition Sensation where it was attacked by then-mayor Rudi Guiliani for being blasphemous. Ofili won the Turner Prize in 1998 and represented Great Britain in the Venice Biennale of 2005. In recent years he has also created sculpture in bronze and numerous works on paper. The book will illustrate works from throughout Ofili's career, including new works made especially for this exhibition. It will include a new interview with the artist, giving insight into his inspiration and motivation, as well as including essays by leading critics that examine the remarkable achievements of an artist at the forefront of the contemporary art scene worldwide.

In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes, written just as he was starting to find his comic voice, Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm, wise, and funny portrait of life in post - World War II America–a world where squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence. --Here are tales both cautionary and hopeful, each brimming with Vonnegut's trademark humor and profound humanism. A family learns the downside of confiding their deepest secrets into a magical invention. A man finds himself in a Kafkaesque world of trouble after he runs afoul of the shady underworld boss who calls the shots in an upstate New York town. A quack psychiatrist turned "murder counselor" concocts a novel new outlet for his paranoid patients. While these stories reflect the anxieties of the postwar era that Vonnegut was so adept at capturing - and provide insight into the development of his early style -collectively, they have a timeless quality that makes them just as relevant today as when they were written. It's impossible to imagine any of these pieces flowing from the pen of another writer; each in its own way is unmistakably, quintessentially Vonnegut. --Featuring a Foreword by author and longtime Vonnegut confidant Sidney Offit and illustrated with Vonnegut' s characteristically insouciant line drawings, Look at the Birdie is an unexpected gift for readers who thought his unique voice had been stilled forever -and serves as a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED///.

Her father was alternately physically abusive and very affectionate, thereby setting up a pattern of highly-charged sexual violence that she sought in her future relationships with men. She studied fine art at college and painted throughout her first marriage. After years of violence and betrayals she left her husband, taking her two daughters, and found herself unable to paint - a block which it took her 20 years to overcome. Turning her talents to the fashion world, she became an arbiter of style at the height of the "Swinging Sixties", as fashion editor of "Nova", "Harper's" and "The Sunday Times". Her second marriage - to a younger man, the painter Patrick Hughes - took her down to Cornwall, where she wrote her best-selling comic-erotic novels. Outwardly it seemed she could do no wrong, but she was already drinking to excess and the marriage was failing. They moved to New York, staying at the notorious Chelsea Hotel and mixing with the famous and infamous, indulging in sex, drugs and drink. Just before she left for England to see her ailing mother, her husband tried to kill her, and back home - alone - she embarked on a career as a cabaret artiste, but the day she blacked out on stage in an alcoholic stupor was her lowest point.
