Moses Operandi
Great selection of art, good country-by-country and artist-by-artist history of art nouveau. Very linear and complete. However, the interior layout of the book leaves a little to be desired: tiny fonts, unattributed quotes, and a little too much on most pages compromise Fahr-Becker's work. In addition, while the writing is perfectly fluent and scholarly, it feels like the work of someone whose first language is not English.

Great history of an incredible movement. Very daring and inclusive: ever

Very comprehensive photo collection of every aspect of Art Nouveau (Jugendstil).
Díky této knize jsem udělala zkoušku na výbornou, takže si těch pět hvězd zaslouží. :)
I doktorka Kofránková se vyjádřila, že je to nejlepší knížka o secesi, jaká se dá v ČR sehnat. Kdo by měl zájem, moje kopie je z městské knihovny.
Pretty standard coffee table-style overview of one of my favorite movements in the modern era of art. Nothing groundbreaking, but worth having as a reference, especially at $20.
More informative than revealing, but still a valuable possession. With lots and lots of eye candy.
