That is a first around here for blogging and posting.
However there have been a lot of firsts this past months and when exactly did October fly right smack into HAPPY HOLIDAYS?
Nevertheless, the past month or so has been jam packed with many opportunities collectively speaking with many more to come! I know not noted on the blog but rest assured the progress has been brewing off the pages and outside of the cyber world.
With that noted, there has been so many interesting things occurring and the holiday season is upon us.
My attention has been turned to gifting at the present, npi.
Which brings me to 2 literary bound page turners with visual impact and very present worthy for the reader or collector on your shopping list.
No.1 takes me to the 80's Oxford Blues and Rob Lowe wearing a very crested blazer as he rowed for Harvard and aspired to attain the affections of his eye on the prize love interest who was so promised to another..... that is until she saw Lowe over a steamy stream rowing to the finish line.
The book Rowing Blazers by Vendome press is a page turner and sure to touch the soul of everyone who donned penny loafers,blue blazers and rolled chinos at one time or another.
You can get your copy here
The book written by champion rower Jack Carlson shows an inside look at crested,pinned and colorful attire worn by the athletes and accompanied by stories and accomplishments within the historical context of the sport. This classic American sport was born in Britain's boathouses and waterways where some of the first blazers were fashioned for private rowing clubs and teams.
The Hue of recognition really needs no introduction for the second selection of which I have already gifted a copy to a collector as well as enthusiast of the gem.
Cartier in the 20th Century can be acquired here
Bound only by pages, this book reveals the Cartier Heritage experience like no other in richly detailed images of the unique and chic Cartier collections and masterpieces of gem and jewelry. An array of jewelry is showcased but unique Cartier items as well from the ateliers of Paris,London and New York.
So many exquisite collections which are as unique as those who have worn the collections and one of a kind pieces throughout history and today from runway to the streets and always in Cartier fashion ....... chic.
Don't miss these two stunning hardbacks this holiday season, great reads with visual imagery at it's finest!
