One of the most popular forms of twentieth-century design, the Art Deco style dominated the decorative arts in the 1920s and '30s. Championed by progressive architects and inspired by such diverse influences as the industrial age and Native American art, it became a form of artistic self-expression for nearly three decades. This volume includes scores of photographs and important articles that describe the aesthetics of this distinctive style. An introduction by architectural critic Lewis Mumford is followed by commentaries by such notables as Frank Lloyd Wright on design principles; theatrical and industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes on outfitting business interiors; and Edward Steichen on commercial photography. A fascinating glimpse of an exciting and innovative period in the history of American design, this book will appeal to a wide audience &́#x80;• from interior decorators and graphic artists to students of art and lovers of the Art Deco style.
