Description - Melbourne Art Deco by Robin Grow
A celebration of Melbourne's most beautiful Art Deco buildings. Melbourne is a great Art Deco city. The heyday of the 1930s brought the construction of some of Melbourne's most striking and beautiful buildings. From the towering police headquarters in Russell Street to the tiniest detail of a suburban interior, Art Deco styling maintains an enduring presence in all facets of Melbourne's cultural life. In Melbourne Art Deco, Robin Grow examines the rise, fall and resurgence of Art Deco in Melbourne from the 1930s to the present-day. With contemporary images by David Thompson and a team of photographers, supported by archival material, the book offers an invaluable insight into the history and current state of one of the world's most popular styles in this particular city.
