The Machine Age in America, 1918-1941.
by [Industrial Design] Wilson, Richard G.; Pilgrim, Dianne H.; Tashjian, Dickran.

Publisher Information:
Harry N. Abrams, New York: 2001.

A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. This large-format book is published in conjunction with a current exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. Far more than just a catalog, the book studies in depth the reciprocal influences of American technology and art. In this context, several chapters discuss subjects such as industrial machines, landscapes, transportation, and architecture. Attention is given to designers such as Loewy and Bel Geddes who considered industrial design as a new art form. The machine age was also an inspiration for both abstract and realistic artists. Liberally illustrated, with photographs and reproductions on almost every page.
