Good Introduction to Art Deco,
This review is from: In the Deco Style (Paperback)
Very relevant book on the subject of Art Deco.
The text is of good quality with an interesting introduction to the subject and a chapter dedicated to «The Origins of Deco» that helps to understand the artistic and cultural context in wich the movement emerged.
The book is divided in more 5 chapters:
- «A Deco World»
- «Deco and the Modern Vision»
- «American Deco»
- «Mass Production»
- «Deco Revival»
The book is full of good quality photographs, both colour and black and white that will give you plenty of examples of deco objects and buildings. The choice of the photos comprises both the classic selection (that you will find in most books) and some very unusual choices - I think this is the book best value, being both and introduction and also showing examples hardly found in other books.
It will be a good choice and excellent value for money.
