American Art Deco by Alastair Duncan
Book DescriptionAfter the initial explosion of art deco in Europe in the mid-1920s, American designers were soon making their own contribution to the style. The illustrations in this book seek to demonstrate that a dynamic American tradition developed in sculpture, ceramics, furniture, architectural decoration, graphics, and virtually all the applied arts. Alastair Duncan explores the subject of American art deco, reassessing and putting into perspective the work of artists such as Donald Deskey, Paul Manship, Gilbert Rohde, Walter von Nessen, and many others whose vision helped transform American art and design.

UK Kirkus Review » A first paperback outing for this definitive, highly illustrated guide to the work of America's leading early 20th-century designers in every medium, including furniture, glass, lighting, jewellery, metalware, textiles and industrial design. Lavishly illustrated, the book is also a reminder of a more luxurious era, when the talents of Cartier, Tiffany, Frank Lloyd Wright and others were employed to celebrate the wonders of the age.
