"Jean-Michel Frank" Book



This is a copy of the first edition from 1980 which was produced in a limited edition of only 4,000 copies. Frank was an interior decorator and furniture designer who worked in the first half of the 20th century who had a short and tragic life which ended in suicide in 1941 and therefore there is only a small amount of his furniture available. He was known for sumptuous furniture and his use of luxurious materials such as Shagreen, Macassar, Ebony and the mixture of textures such as bronze, vellum and various leathers and skins. He worked for a number of the famous fashion houses such as Schiaparelli, Lucien Lelong designing their salons and collaborated with other designers such as Alberto and Diego Giacometti and Christian Bérard. 216 pages with text in English and French. There is a minor blemish to the rear of the dust jacket at the bottom where a tiny piece is missing.
