Art Deco is the decorative, distinctly aesthetic style of the years between 1920 and 1940. The movement embraced all areas of lifestyle and art. Art Deco was a commitment to functionaity and modern technology, from autos to industrial design. With over 500 illustrations, this volume showcases the complexity of the Art Deco style and its manifestations in architecture, fashion, advertising, everyday objects, transport, graphics like books and magazines, and other areas of life, with examples worldwide.

Streamlining was just the tip of the iceberg with Deco, but it included everything from train engines (The Silver Streak) to automobile grills and fenders. Interior design incorporated its wonderful features and great examples are in abundance here. French artist George Barbier was one of the most well-known of the practitioners in the arts, illustrating softly erotic books, magazine covers, even fashion catalogs. There's a wonderful selection of his work here.

This is an amazing collection, with superlative photography. Vases, tables, chairs, lamps, statues, jewelry, stained-glass windows, movie posters, wallpaper, hat pins...examples are all here in abundance. Deco designers incorporated the nude body in their work, with graceful women as soap holders, tabletop statues, lamp bases and of course in graphic design.

Occasional nudity.
