The Chandelier Through the Centuries is an exquisite coffee table book from award-winning author/photographer Kerri McCaffety, and was awarded a bronze medal as one of the top new home and garden books in 2006. Conceived as the definitive resource on chandeliers, this large-format collection of 200 photographs offers page after page of decorative lights in settings ranging from the grand palaces of Europe to sultry rooms in New Orleans to dusty antique shops scattered about the South. Timelines, charts, diagrams and quotes supplement the rich images and entertaining history. Kerri McCaffety's characteristic combination of extensive research and breathtaking photography make The Chandelier Through the Centuries the most beautiful and comprehensive history of chandeliers ever published. Describing McCaffety's signature style, Francis Ford Coppola has said, "[She] makes the images sensual and rich, and transforms the places she photographs into poems." Her latest effort will be a must-have for professionals in lighting, antiques and design fields and will delight anyone interested in decorative arts and exquisite interiors.
