DESCRIPTION: The publisher has rightly earned a reputation for 
producing great art books, beautifully illustrated and lavishly 
bound. This new book lives fully up to the deserved reputation. 
Gianmaria Buccellati was an artist who chose to work in gold and 
jewels, leaving a legacy of beauty  – Much Recommended.

Gold has always fascinated down the centuries. It has been stored 
and worked and decorated by generations of gold smiths. It is 
always highly prized. Periodically, a great artist emerges and 
provides works in gold that hold timeless beauty and achieve a 
value far beyond the great value of the metal alone. Gianmaria 
Buccellati was one of these masters. His work is celebrated by 
the Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation and is laid out in this fine 
book.

It is difficult to really categorize a gold master. Is he an 
artist, a sculptor, a gold smith, or much more? Perhaps we need 
a new word to describe this select band

This book contains descriptive text and great images, telling 
the story of the man and his outstanding artistic contribution. 
The text is in English and the publisher has not included a text 
in Italian alongside, which is understandable because there is so 
much to tell and there are limits to the size of a book produced 
on quality gloss art paper and lovingly bound to reflect the 
quality of the subject.

This is a book for the creative soul and for all who enjoy the 
beauty created by an outstanding craftsman.
