This book is a must for anyone looking to be informed on art deco. The pictures, some in black and white show stark contrast and the cutting edge to deco art. Well researched and well written. Kudos

I was disappointed--it is undoubtedly scholarly, after all it is Alastair Duncan, but I wanted it for the visuals. The book itself is only 6"x8". Of the 194 illustrations, most are very small black and white photos. Details are lost. (Only 44 are in color.) It seems good enough if you want it for historical reference, but not if you are looking for design resources. I regret buying it.
