‘The best book on Art Deco to have appeared so far, and likely to remain so.’ -  Literary Review.

Russel Wright spherical vase, planter and cocktail shaker 1932 - Art Deco 1910-1939

Art Deco came to epitomise the glamour, luxury and hedonism of the Jazz Age. It burst on to the world stage at the 1925 Exposition internationale des art decoratifs et industriels modernes in Paris, and quickly swept across the globe. Its influence was felt everywhere, from the skylines of New York and Shanghai to the design of fashionable eveningwear and the signature style of hotels, cocktail bars, nightclubs and cinemas.

This authoritative publication which accompanied an exhibition at V&A in 2003 brings together leading experts to explore the sources of Art Deco, the Paris exhibition of 1925, travel and transportation, Hollywood and  global spread of Art Deco. With its beautiful illustrations, this lavish volume is the definitive book on what is, arguably, the most popular style of the twentieth century.
