Beschrijving

A wide-ranging and unique survey of Art Deco architecture and design, told through postcards of the era. Art Deco was one of the most captivating and popular artistic movements of the twentieth century, and its iconic blend of luxury and simplicity still bewitches us today. This volume has an entirely original approach to the subject: it features postcards from the 1920s to 1940s—from nightclubs, hotels, and restaurants to skyscrapers, apartment buildings, and airports—each landmark or interior immortalized in miniature. Emblems of the era, such as the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, appear, as well as a selection of less well-known façades and interiors from around the world. The expositions and world fairs that drove the development of the style were often ephemeral displays, and the book captures these structures that are no longer on the map but have left an enduring legacy. A special pop-out-and-keep facsimile section includes detachable reproductions of some of the most important and beautiful cards. 250 full-color illustrations
