This took a while to read, although it is quite short. There are a lot of photographs to accompany the text, but still there are a lot of descriptions that lack illustrations, which was a bit annoying. It was, however, a good introduction to the subject, and has introduced me to names and terms which will come in handy when I tackle other books on my favourite art period.

An extensive description of Art Deco works in the domains of Art and Decoration. Not so many examples on Architecture and not so many pictures, but it's a good reference for the subject. There's a good bibliographic reference at the end of the book.

Like many books on the art deco style, this one focuses mainly on sculpture and architecture, but does feature some great graphic design. Bloody expensive, though. Read before buying.
