Thanks to my fellow Blogger Zoe for her brief comments and review on the recently released Margot book. I wanted to wait like a minute before I posted but with Zoe's comments I will go ahead. I want to say that the pics and quality was exceptional - all color plates with no drawings or depictions...very nice and no expense spared in the production.
But yes, I would have like seen some other less known or seen pieces (I missed the Roman numerals set) and I should have just sent in my pics of my Margot = my favorite being the rare and hard to find zodiac necklace with all 12 pieces hanging from it. But there were some amazing pieces pictured like that blue or purple carved set. I saw that in the first Mexican exhibit and its breathtaking.
I would have liked to have seen some text and pics of some of the other Taxco women designers - Bernice Goodspeed, Victoria, Carmen Beckmann, or Matl. But no, just more Los Castillo = I love Antonio but he already has books and exhibits = can we see something else por favor?
The research was WoW but not sure that I really wanted to know that much about Margots mom. I wanted to know more about the end of her career and her life - dying penniless on a friends couch. And that Mr. Quiroz both a hero and a leech - saving her molds then capitalizing on them.
I look foward to a book on Matl, Carmen, Victoria, Brenda, Agnes, Any woman who lived and worked in any male dominated industry (esp in Mex) is more than ok in my book....
