Della Cavalleria is one of the most extraordinary treatises in the history of riding. Written by Georg Engelhard von Löhneysen, it was published in Bavaria at the very beginning of the 17th century, and now a part of the Émile Hermès collection. Illustrated with baroque engravings, it presents some German sleighs drawn by fabulous creatures and richly adorned horses. Playing with these, the designer pushes extravagance even further by assembling horses' bodies and chimerical monsters. Keeping in the theme of games, she humorously gives one a racket, a yoyo or a diabolo to another, creating strange visual associations worthy of an exquisite corpse.
