Art Deco : 1910-1939.
by [Art Deco Movement] Wood, Ghislaine (editor); Benton, Charlotte (editor); Benton, Tim (editor).

Publisher Information:
Bulfinch, New York: 2003.

A Fine copy in a Near Fine dust j acket with light wear to the spine. Art Deco swept across the globe during the 1920s and 1930s and created the defining look of the interwar years. In an era of contradictions that encompassed both the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression, it imbued everyday life with elegance and sophistication. It transformed the skylines of cities as diverse as New York and Shanghai and touched the design of everything from Hollywood films to clothing to luxury liners and locomotives. Art Deco was the style of hedonism, of indulgence, and of mass consumption. ART DECO 1910-1939 is the most wide-ranging survey of what created such an utterly distinctive iconography. Nearly 40 essays from leading experts in the field discuss the Art Deco phenomenon--its sources, its varied forms of expression, and the way it refined and redefined itself as it spread throughout the world. With breathtaking illustrations and essays both thought-provoking and scholarly, it will stand as the definitive book on what was, arguably, the most popular style of the 20th century. [PLEASE NOTE: This oversize art book requires a domestic shipping fee of $10.00.]
