Perfect coffee table book. Lots of beautiful illustrations and actually has a great story to tell about the Art Deco movement in fashion, art, and also discusses the social implications of the time period. This is one of my absolutely favourite periods of all time; this book elegantly and thoroughly captures many of the reasons why.
A beautiful cover, and a beautiful interior, on a beautiful topic. I love this book a great deal: it was the first book I ever owned about Art Deco, and it opened my eyes to some of the essentials on the subject.
