Jewelry of the Golden Age of Hollywood, conceived and produced at the HSE Art and Design School Moscow, is a visual research that considers costume design as an important element in the work on the film. Through the prism of cinematography, the author explores how jewelry was demonstrated in those times, how it is related to the character personality and helps to reveal it in the film, and why the jewelry as just a small detail of the costume is so important for the whole image of the character. The book also gives an idea of the vintage jewelry, showing the aesthetics of this period.
The book is an album of characters from the movies of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The characters were divided into eight sections based on their roles in the films. For each character, there is a questionnaire in the book that provides information about the character, which actor or actress plays the character and in which movie. The visual material of the study is photographs of the character’s jewelry and photographs or film frames of the character wearing presented jewelry.
The fonts that were used in the book are Kazimir and Kazimir Text, conveying the atmosphere of glamour, corresponding to the shown era.
