New Book “On Jewellery”, by Liesbeth den Besten

June 21, 2011 | 2 Comments

I just received in my mailbox the news that Liesbeth de Besten has written an indispensable handbook of international contemporary jewellery art, introducing its tendencies and role from the late 1960s to today within the context of current trends in art and society. A synopsis of what jewellery art is and can be. 
Knowing Liesbeth this will be a book you don’t wanna miss! Almost two hundred pages and provided with beautiful 150 colour illustrations. On my photo stream this time pictures from this new book ‘On Jewellery’, so take a look & get a glance of what you can expect! 

 For the exact information about the content please take a look at Arnoldsche where it will be available from  November 2011 onwards. ISBN 978-3-89790-349-4, English, €30. This book will be launched 6th November 2011 at the opening of the exhibition ‘Jewellery Unleashed!, at ‘Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem’, The Netherlands. This upcoming exhibition will come to an end at 5th February 2012. For the latest information of this exhibition, please take a look at this website.
