Wide-ranging collection of essays on various facets of Viennese culture around the turn of the twentieth century ... from Klimt and Loos to Mahler and Freud ... lavishly illustrated with mostly contemporaneous images ... most impressive ...

It's an ample history of turn of the century Vienna arts and culture, and most definitely fed my obsession for the Wierner Werkstatte, Kolo Moser, Egon Schiele, etc. There are several contributing authors, some more articulate than others, and the architecture chapters are especially good. I liked the pictures.

Multiple essays systematically illuminate facets of the burgeoning art and culture scene of the Viennese fin de siècle. And the images! Over 500 in all, of high quality, generously illustrating the content of the essays. Nearly 400 pages, but I pored over every single one of them...

To be honest I didn't actually read this book just looked at all the pretty pictures. The graphic design is so inspiring and I love Gustav Klimpt (beyond dorm room poster "The Kiss".
