- It seems like the 1960s and 1970s are having a revival as two other books explore this period and dedicate individual tomes to the works of Andrew Grima and Betty Cooke.
- ‘Andrew Grima, the Father of Modern Jewellery’ is a coffee table book written by William Grant that over 335 pages charts Grima’s career and achievements as well as the continuation of his business by his wife Jojo and daughter Francesca.
- Jewellery expert Geoffroy Munn writes in the foreword: ‘Each and every chapter in this beautifully illustrated book makes a special contribution to the history of jewellery but is also a microcosm of 20th-century design.’
- Detailed and beautifully illustrated, the book covers his rise to fame and royal patronage as well as collaborations with international houses such as Dunhill, Omega and Pulsar.
- A must for all lovers of Grima jewellery and a fitting recognition of the legacy he left to jewellery design around the world.
