Overview

A style book on perhaps the most popular design movement of the twentieth century-Art deco. This book is a style survey, covering deco from its origins in France in the 20's up through its later changes and revivals. Art Deco sprung from a wide variety of sources and ideas, and its influence has been equally widespread, in fields from architecture, interior design and even ship design to jewelry, glassware, furniture and ceramics. This book serves not only as a valuable reference for designers and collectors, but is also a trove of visual delights for everyone interested in style and design.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This fascinating book surveys the style known as Art Deco and assesses its development, its relationship to other artistic styles and to societal changes, and its popularization through mass production. The authors discuss all the major designers and many minor ones as well. All artistic fields involved in the deco style are discussed: architecture, interior design, advertising, furniture, ceramics, jewelry, and, of course, industrial design. They provide a fairly evenhanded coverage of the impact and manifestations of deco in the United States, England, and Europe. Particularly interesting is their appraisal of the deco revival which began in the 1960s. This beautifully designed book with hundreds of illustrations is highly recommended. Lynell A. Morr, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art Lib., Sarasota, Fla.
