"Eric Knowles clearly knows his stuff having worked in the antiques industry since 1976. This shows in his in-depth introduction, which clearly takes us on the journey from the end of World War 1 through to the 1925 Paris Exposition Des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes and beyond. Having a glossy book that shares the key pieces from [Art Deco] style, is of great interest from a research point of view, but it's also lovely to look at too!" --Kate Beavis, author of "Style Your Modern Vintage Home"
