Book Description

27 Sep 1999
An exploration of art deco architectural design, embracing many different times and places in its summary of the movement's origins, development and influence. Various types of architecture, the author explains, were termed art deco, and their antecedents were mixed and often surprising: arts and crafts, fin-de-siecle Vienna, Cubism, Expressionism and the Bauhaus. Patricia Bayer shows that art deco masterpieces can be seen and admired worldwide: from the skyscrapers of New York City to imperial dwellings in Tokyo; from Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Battersea Power Station to movie theatres and diners across America. Post-modernism now uses its motifs and idioms, and many of the original buildings still survive, fully restored to their former glory.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide with hundreds of examples 31 July 2001
Format:Paperback
Money well spent. A vast, eclectic mix of styles, locations and building types. Highly informative text. My ideal Art Deco Architecture book would be cover to cover colour with perhaps, more photographs of fewer buildings, hence four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Bargain on Art Deco 25 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I agree that this is not the best buy on Art Deco but it is maybe the best value for money you can find.
There are good pictures and the text is also great. We would like to have some more colour pictures or more recent photos, with better quality but ...
I highly recommend the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough Art Deco Architecture guide 19 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
A decent stab at explaining and informing on the ideas and stories behind some nice examples of art deco architecture. I found it a little wordy and it could do with some more vibrant pictures (i.e. in colour) a decent stab at the subject and a good coffee table tome.

4.0 out of 5 stars ART DECO 22 Dec 2007
By Shannon Deason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Let me state off the bat; I love Art Deco architecture. The artistry and the masonry that went into these buildings is a feast for the eyes. This book is very thorough and the vintage black and white pictures ooze sepia, some these buildings I had never seen photographed. The text is informative without being too scholarly or too grossly indepth. This is one of the better books on Art Deco, but still the book on American Art Deco is the best, it has recent color images and is just a much prettier book, but for what this is, it succeeds very well.
