Jewelry By Architects.
First edition. Quarto. 118pp with colour plates and illustrations throughout. Cloth boards in photographic dust jacket. New York: Rizzoli, 1987.
Some foxing. A very good copy.

A dazzling display of jewellery commissioned by collector Cleto Munari from renowned post modern architects and the Memphis designers. Author Barbara Radice interviews each architect, many of whom had never made jewellery before and view the endeavour of creating these pieces as an extension of their architectural practice. A fascinating collection of imagery that gives another perspective into the aesthetics of architecture seen here in miniaturised, wearable form. Examples by Michele de Lucchi, Peter Shire, Ettore Sottsass, Robert Venturi and many others.
