Description

The success of the Ballets Russes was legendary, but there is more to the legend than its name: the actual story, the adventure — conceived by one man and lived by a few—that lasted only eight seasons and three summers. From 1911 to 1914, Serge iDiaghilev, driven by conviction and stubbornness, turned his vision into reality. He collaborated with Leon Bakst, Igor Stravinsky, and Pablo Picasso (to name a few) to create an explosion of creativity in Western Europe the likes of which had never been seen in the world of art. Thanks to Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, the most illustrious page in the history of ballet, one of the most glorious moments in the adventure of art, was written. To turn the pages of this stunning tome whichoffers exceptional documents on the legendary Ballet Russes from 1911 to 1914 is to follow Diaghilev’s on his creative quest, one that continues to influence art, theater, ballet, and fashion to this day.

Assouline’s Ultimate Collection is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper, each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Treating a range of topics from jewelry and fashion, fine art and the ‘Impossible Collections,’ the Ultimate Collection curates culture from around the world and across the ages. Nestled in linen clamshell presentation cases, these books attract collectors, lovers of the printed page, and those who devour the culture of our time. Signaling a new level of sophistication for true connoisseurs, these unique books are works of art in their own right.
