Art Deco was a major decorative style of the 1920s - the perfect expression of the extravagance of Paris during that decade. Art Deco offers a broad insight into the splendor of this most lavish of decorative styles, as seen in the work of its leading French exponents. Their elegant creations are brought together in this profusely illustrated volume, which includes much material not previously published.

Victor Arwas's magnificent book offers a broad insight into the elements of this distinctive decorative style. Arwas discusses the work of Art Deco's leading French exponents - Ruhlmann, Puiforcat, Erte, Dunand, Fouquet, Cassandre, Boucheron, and Icart, to name but a few - as he traces the evolution of the style from its first appearance at the famed 1925 Exposition des Victor Arwas's magnificent book offers a broad insight into the elements of this distinctive decorative.

Lovely book

Would have preferred more smaller photos rather than so many full-page artsy ones. If this is "THE" definitive book on Art Deco, then someone should try another one. Not enuf furniture, too much on knick-knacks.

I thought this was a worthwhile book for anyone who wants an introduction to Art Deco. The production is quite simple, each spread has one big picture (plenty of pages have an other smaller image, too) and an extended caption. It is the large images that I particularly liked, so you have a chance to really see the essence of the style. There are no chapters as such but it starts with architecture, then paintings, sculpture and commercial graphics, furniture, ceramics and finally object d'art. Most of the images are of European Deco (especially French) the US is only really covered by New York and Miami architecture. If you want to find some books about American Deco see my Listmania on Art Deco and on Streamline.
For an inexpensive hardback, with 120 pictures in color I thought this was a bargain.

Pictures are mostly from Christie's catalogs (and credited as such). Particularly disappointing aspect is that the SAME pictures are used two and three times throughout the book. There's less here than meets the eye. Also missing is any practical information on the pieces shown. Missing are: size of the object; medium (Oil? Tempera? Lacquer? You don't know); history; when sold... What IS written is exceptionally superficial and in some cases downright erroneous. So if you want a book with just nice pictures: buy this. If you want information, find another book.

The 1980 edition (0810906910) is truly a steal, I purchased the over-sized, heavy book for $6.50 including shipping. Amazon actually posted the wrong dimensions the 1980 edition, the book is actually larger, like 32cm/12.6" tall. Lavishly illustrated with 416 illustrations, 200 of which are in full color. Basically a survey of the different types of Art Deco objects de art. a great addition to any library for the price
You have three reasons to buy this book:
1. Pictures - I own it two years and I really love photos in it
2. Text - I own it two years and never read a word
3. Hardback in your bookshelf - Would you like to look smart?
