 OTTO JAKOB: RIPE FRUIT

edited by Angelika Taschen, Hatje Cantz, $97

Postmodern painter turned goldsmith Otto Jakob has many interests and his jewellery designs – like his house, which is filled with artworks by Georg is a monograph that peels back the layers of what seems like unbridled passion, only to reveal a fastidious and disciplined work ethic at play. Complete with an introduction by jewellery historian Vivienne Becker, it becomes, albeit unintentionally, an elaborate example of the nature of creativity. Every tiny, amuletic design in this book swings from the beautiful to the educational and then back again, showing how we, too, might develop fledgling ideas with finesse.
