Now Art Nouveau is a tricky style. It's based on similar idea's developed in different cultures and this book shows the diverse result.
If you are very interested in the cultural influences ín Art Nouveau this will interest you. But it's not for the general public.
Helsinki's Art Nouveau will interest designers and architects and show an interesting minor development within the style. But most will probably ask what all the fuss is about for it's hardly on level with Gaudí or Horta.
Unfortunately the book is written in a difficult and boring way. You really have to concentrate on the text and sometimes you have to read it multiple times to understand what the writer is trying to tell. And since it's a reprint from 1991 the photo's are a bit dated but still ok.
For the fanatics then.
