Over The Top: Helena Rubinstein Coffee Table Book, 2006

About the Item

Over The Top: Helena Rubinstein, Extraordinary Style, Beauty, Art, Fashion, Design published in 2006 and written by Suzanne Slesin chronicles the life and extraordinary times of a trailblazer in the cosmetics industry. Not only was Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965) a savvy and successful entrepreneur, but she was also a stylemaker with unique taste for both personal adornment and decor. Her art collection included ground breaking modernists of the time ... Picasso, Dali, Matisse, Brancusi ... just to name a few. She was also fascinated with African art and incorporated carvings and masks into her Art Deco decors. This hardbound 216 page volume recounts her history, both business and personal, with beautiful images and informative text. Original dust jacket included. As Ms. Rubinstein would say, 'There are no ugly women, only lazy ones'...gotta love it! CONDITION The book is in very good previously owned condition. The dust jacket show some signs of age and use including scratching to the gloss surface and wear to the edges. A removable clear archival cover has been added to maintain integrity of the dust jacket and prevent further wear. MEASUREMENTS The book measures 11.5" wide x 12.25" tall x 1" deep.
