Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
3 Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
Cleveland, Ohio Cowell & Hubbard Unknown (Presumed 80's) Unknown Card cover Very good condition 
The cover of this trade catalog presented by Cowell and Hubbard, Cleveland, Ohio's premiere jewelry store from 1861. It looks like the title box is falling off and the cover is wrinkled. But, no! It's flat and smooth -- the design tricked the eye. What also makes this catalog so interesting is the pairing of expensive fine jewelry with couture clothing designed by Bill Blass, Adele Simpson, Ralph Lauren and others. Catalog measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 72 pages. There's also an order blank which folds into an envelope -- unused. Unfortunately, there is no date and no clues. I came to the conclusion that it might be from the 80's because of a long sleeved wedding dress with a hat.

The Thought of Things: Jewelry by Kiff Slemmons, Slemmons, Kiff
7 Slemmons, Kiff The Thought of Things: Jewelry by Kiff Slemmons
Palo Alto, California Palo Alto Art Center 2000 Card cover Fine condition 
Crisp and clean as new -- a truly creative spin on jewelry which is complimented by critics and yet at the time of the catalog was still considered mildly outsider art.There's a lot to read and the size is great at 7" x 11" had has 32 pages. The photographs are in full color and the designs are eye popping. I wish I could get better pictures, but the mostly black glossy pages of art wind up with a burst of light. But if you are jewelry lover and/or collector or artist this one deserves a place in the collection. It was created to accompany an exhibit at the Palo Alto Art Museum from January 23 to April 30, 2000. I had two of these, but this is the last one.
