When I wrote to Agostino Dessi to ask him whether I could sell some of his masks in my Dutch gallery, he replied: "If you want to sell my masks, you have to come to Florence and buy them yourself!" So I did. His shop, where he works alongside his daughter Alice, is a place of magic. His masks are truly wonderful, and when I displayed them in my shop, they sold out in a matter of days. If you cannot travel to Florence, or if you loved the masks you saw there or in Vence, buy this book. It conveys the knowledge, but above all the magic and passion with which these works of art were made!
