Art Deco was a major decorative style of the 1920s-the perfect expression of the extravagance of Paris during that decade. Renowned for its opulence and exclusiveness, Art Deco embraced every area of the decorative arts, including furniture, jewelry, painting and graphics, bookbinding, glass, and ceramics, and was the last coherent decorative style to emerge from Europe during this century.
The book offers a broad insight into the splendor of this most lavish of decorative styles, as seen in the work of its leading French designers and artists. Their elegant creations are brought together in this handsome and profusely illustrated volume.
