Art deco—the style of the flapper, the luxury ocean liner, and the skyscraper—came to epitomize the glamour, luxury, and hedonism of the Jazz Age. It burst onto the world stage at the 1925 Exposition internationale des art decoratifs et industriels modernes in Paris and quickly swept the globe. Its influence was felt everywhere, from the skylines of New York and Shanghai to the design of fashionable eveningwear, jewelry, and plastic radios. Above all, it became the style of the pleasure palaces of the age—hotels, nightclubs, and movie theaters. This authoritative publication brings together leading experts in the field to explore the sources, varied forms of expression, distinct visual language, and global reach of deco. With its breathtaking illustrations, this lavish volume is the defi nitive book on what is, arguably, the most popular style of the 20th century.
Charlotte Benton is an independent architecture and design historian. Tim Benton is professor of art history at the Open University in the U.K. Ghislaine Wood was curator of the V&A touring exhibition Art Deco 1910–1939 and deputy curator of Art Nouveau 1890–1914.
