Art Deco was one of the most captivating and popular artistic movements of the 20th century, and its iconic blend of luxury and simplicity still possesses the power to bewitch.
This volume brings an entirely original approach to the subject, collecting and featuring some 250 postcards from the 1920s to 1940s from nightclubs, hotels and restaurants to skyscrapers, apartment buildings and airports.
A pop-out-and-keep facsimile section includes detachable reproductions of some of the most important and beautiful cards, some black and white and some displaying their retro tints.
These cards can be displayed or sent, making the book an ideal gift or the start of a collection.
This striking new volume, by a leading Art Deco specialist, will appeal to the worldwide audience that has long been captivated by the style of the Jazz Age.
