Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-A truly beautiful and authoritative book that is well organized, easy to read, and full of Russian history. It is the story of the artist who created lavish works for the ruling classes of late 19th-and 20th-century Europe, and fantastic jeweled Imperial Easter Eggs for the last two Czars of Russia. Von Habsburg recounts how training, hard work, and luck characterized the designer's career and notes his shrewdness as a businessman. The demise of the Russian Imperial family meant the end of his wonderful art objects, many of which are housed in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. High-quality, full-color photographs (including a large center fold-out section) showcase the artist's talent.-Judy R. Johnston, Auburn High School, WA
Karen Simonetti
Beginning with his birth in 1872 in czarist Russia and concluding with the world's continuing fascination with his art, this biography of Faberge provides a fabulous glimpse of an era in which an artisan's style and designs influenced a culture. The writing style is clear and engaging, successfully conveying Faberge's political astuteness, his drive, and the delight he took in his work, and the black-and-white photographs from the period, as well as exquisite color pictures of Faberge's works, augment a sense of the people, the place, and the times. The book is, however, uneven in its historical detail, the index is anemic, and there are no sources. A list of illustrations helps compensate for sometimes awkward placement of the pictures, but the fine selection of outstanding photographs will still leave a lasting impression.
