Art Deco: The Golden Age of Graphic Art & Illustration
This beautifully illustrated book is a celebration of Art Deco's expression through the graphic arts and illustration. Divided into three sections—the movement, its fashion and advertising—the reader gains great insight into the artists and innovators that helped popularize the Art Deco movement, such as Georges Barbier, Erté, Cassandre and Paul Colin. While the main focus for this intriguing book is centred on graphic art, numerous examples of other forms of Art Deco are also featured. Nestled among the posters and paintings, sculpture, objets d'art and jewellery assert their similarity, whether through line, form or theme. These echoes serve to show the creativity fertility of the period as styles and ideas traversed artistic media.

Nice history book. The only thing that I didn't enjoy was having to flip back to pictures after the descriptions...I really hate flipping back and forth, especially when the book is an awkward shape. Read full review
