magnificent collection of exquisite theatrical costume designs. With a portrait frontispiece of Barbier by his friend Charles Martin.

Edmond Jaloux writes in the preface 'George Barbier is one of the most precious and significant artists of our time...when everything has turned to dust and ashes, a few of his watercolours and drawings with suffice to resuscitate spirit of the era in which we lived.'
