about

Art Deco's sheer exuberance ensured its success across the globe and it adapted to the most diverse situations, as shown by examples ranging from offices in Europe and gas stations in America to maharajahs' palaces in India and imperial dwellings in Japan. Public buildings of all kinds-whether fountain or state capitol, skyscraper or bus terminal-bear witness to its decades of popularity. Sumptuously illustrated, this unrivaled study provides a comprehensive guide to the best loved of all 20th-century architectural styles.
Patricia Bayer is an art historian who has written extensively on Art Deco design and architecture. Her books include Art Deco Architecture, Art Deco Interiors, and Art Deco Postcards. She lives in Connecticut.
