In this book, it should be noted, authors Bevis Hillier and Stephen Escritt take a scholarly approach in writing about the subject of style. Chapters such as "Strictly Modern: The 1925 Paris Exhibition and the State of European Decoration" and "Decomania: Revivalism, Heritage, History and Post-Modernism" examine the issues that influenced the development of Art Deco.
In addition to the engaging text and splendid images of Art Deco objects, this book has another feature that sets it apart - the "Biographies of Artists and Designers" section. This valuable chapter lists the contributions of some of the most important Art Deco designers and artists, including such luminaries as Susie Cooper, Eileen Gray, Rene Lalique, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, and Kem Weber.
Art Deco Style is available at Amazon.com.
