Overview

A major design movement of the 1920s and 1930s, Art Deco drew its strength from architecture, modern art, primitivism, and industry. It gave us the Chrysler Building and Soviet post art — and also gave us a legacy that continues to pulse with energy and excitement even today.
In this rich collection of 349 images, the Art Deco style is evident in every draping vine, languid curve, bulging muscle, and geometric figure. It will leap out at you from friezes, plaques, sculpture, vases, doorways, tiles, furniture, arches, and more.
It's a splendid book for anyone interested in the arts — and for artists and craftsmen, a genuine wellspring of artistic ideas.
