Description - Women of the 1920s: Style, Glamour and the Avant-Garde by Thomas Bleitner
Experience the glamour and excitement of the Jazz Age, through the lives of the women who defined it. It was a time of unimagined new freedoms. From the cafes of Paris to Hollywood's silver screen, women were exploring new modes of expression and new lifestyles. In countless aspects of life, they dared to challenge accepted notions of a "fairer sex," and opened new doors for the generations to come. What's more, they did it with joy, humour and unapologetic charm. Exploring the lives of eighteen artists, writers, designers, dancers, adventurers, and athletes, this splendidly illustrated book brings together dozens of photographs with an engaging text. In these pages, readers will meet such iconoclastic women as the lively satirist Dorothy Parker, the avant-garde muse and artist Kiki de Montparnasse, and aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart, whose stories continue to offer inspiration for our time. Women of the 1920s is a daring and stylish addition to any bookshelf of women's history. AUTHOR: Thomas Bleitner is a writer and bookseller based in Hamburg, Germany.
