For any lover of art deco this book is a gem. From an interested beginner to a serious study this book is just lovely. From the embossed front cover the book is pure class.Colour photos or illustrations on every page,and each page has a colour border, it is a real treat. I bought it for my daughter who loves art deco illustrations and the fashion drawings in here are lovely.There are plenty of chapters on the movement, fashion and advertising with lots of small sub headings so it is easy just to read bits here and there as pictures catch your eye. The photographs, of jewellery, wall lights, vases and clocks to name but a few are in themselves stunning.So if you love anypart of the art deco movement you will love this book.

I bought this book for my grand daughter who is taking A level Art & Design.

The photographs are absolutely beautiful. and as she was looking for images of advertising in the Art Deco period this was really helpful. Her art master seemed very impressed, I understand, when she took it into school!!.

Very informative and interesting to read. Although a fan of all things "Deco" this book told me a lot that I didn't know before. Beautiful illustrations but I do have a bit of a gripe. The pictures on the page are often not connected to the text thereon which will often refer the reader to the relevant illustration on another page - in one case 30 pages back in the book!

I am delighted with this book! Lots of pictures and names I've not met before. Informative without being like an academic text book, but it's all there - in an inspiring Art Deco way. Love it!

Amazing book! Bought it as a present and it was very happily received by a friend with a lot of knowledge of this art period - so I guess that means the book is decent. The photos and illustrations are wonderful and it's a big hefty book, full of information. Arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. Beautiful cover!

Although I am an Engineer , I do like art , especially from the early 1900's . This book expresses the Art Deco form in its purest tense . This form of art is , I think , the most elegant .
An excellent book very well presented . The paintings are superb .
