Encyclopedia of the Exquisite
This "Anecdotal History of Elegant Delights" by Jessica Kerwin Jenkins is a "wonderful mélange of chic and amusing tidbits—" according to Michael Kors.
The author captures "the past of each enduring source of beauty" with elegance and grace. Cleverly illustrated, and with an extensive bibliography, this sixteenth century-stylized encyclopedia "merges whimsy and practicality, traipsing through the fine arts and the worlds of fashion, food, travel, home, garden, and beauty."
An "exquisite" tasseled bookmark is included with every book.
