9780500420690 Thames and Hudson
Art Deco designs encompass a huge range of styles, techniques and media. Spanning the boom of the roaring 1920s and bust of the 1930s, Art Deco simultaneously drew on traditional designs and techniques and embraced the modern, mechanized world. The Age of Glamour showcases the breadth of Art Deco design, from abstract Modernist designs to intricate patterns and fashion plates.
An introduction to Art Deco and its characteristic features is followed by full-colour reproductions of the original designs interpersed among line drawings for colouring in. Thumbnails at the end of the book identify all the designs. Art Deco remains enduringly popular for its eclecticism, vibrant colours and bold use of line and shape.
The designs are a rich source of inspiration and have influenced countless artists and designers. The Age of Glamour encourages you to experiment with the designs and complete them in the colours that inspire you.
