Nostalgia and the pendulum of fashion have lead to a renewal of interest in Art Deco, the decorative style that flourished between the first and second world wars. This book, a product of the 1971 exhibition at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, offers the most authoritative record of the extravagant 1930's moderne style. Nearly fifteen hundred objects, ranging from sculpture to scent-sprays, from furniture to fashion-plates, have been drawn from celebrated private collections, museums and dealers in Europe and America.ISBN: 0-525-47680-6
