Although less than one hundred pages, this book is a wealth of pleasure. The photographs are both plentiful and beautiful. There is very little text, but what is there is informative. For me it is the perfect book to enjoy the jewelry of Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria.

The photos of the jewelry are great, really unusual .
The second part, showing the Hermes photo collection is not so great. Could be the book's layout that detracts from what must be a fabulous collection.
