Format: Paperback
A very comprehesive and well-written guide to Art Deco tiles in the UK. It covers the design aspects incuding the transition from Art Noveau and the differences to the Modernist movement in architecture. The book includes plenty of photos of tiles in site as well as original advertising material. I especially liked the fact that it covered architectural faience which was such a feature of this period as well as tiles.

I also appreciated the detailed technical descripions of the different types of glazing and decoration.

Got interested in Art Deco for a dolls house project and this book answered several of my questions about what sort of tiles to go for in decorating in the Art Deco style. Lovely big colour pictures and drawings and loads of them, not only of individual tiles, but examples of architecture that used them. Wonderful read.
