In this book, Geneviève Fontan takes an inventory of nearly 200 Hermès Squares, in particular the Special Editions printed for a special occasion. The classification is made in alphabetical order of the names of Squares, followed by the year of publication and the name of the illustrator. Then come the color, the dimensions, the nature of the textile… and the evaluation of the Square. The squares produced in series, in partnership or using innovative processes are also inventoried in this book. The book is illustrated with the Squares concerned. The reader will be able to take note of the anecdotes related to the edition of certain squares. Finally, a general inventory of Carrés Hermès classified chronologically by illustrators brings this book to a close. The book is pleasant and easy to read.
This book written by Geneviève Fontan is the result of a long research, both bibliographic and iconographic. The primary goal of this work is to provide major information to collectors of Carrés Hermès Special Editions around the world. From her experience, her knowledge and her passion for art, she realizes through her books the desires to which collectors aspire that only an art lover and collector can translate.
