Baroque Rocks Books

The team here at Baroque Rocks likes to indulge itself in splendour and to be surrounded by both books and jewels.   Both tell of an oft. fascinating story and so we decided to share our finds and curate a veritable treasure trove of bejewelled literature on our very favourite topic!  Rather like a dazzling Diamond, each book has been chosen for its brilliance and scintillation and we very much hope that you enjoy our selection!
