Characterized by geometric shapes, stylized natural forms and the use of luxuriuos materials Art Deco originated in France and spread quickly all over the globe during the 1930s. Interest in the style was revived in the 1960s, partly as a result of the work of Bevis Hillier who recalls his triumphs and mistakes in writing the first book on the subject and co-organizing the Minneapolis exhibition in 1971. Stephen Escritt’s text deals with recent scholarship and changing attitudes towards Art Deco, by charting its various worldwide manifestations he demonstrates that the stle (although retrospectively labelled a movement) had a coherance that lead to its international spread. The text is illustrated with examples from all over the world, ranging from liners to letterboxes and from radios to lampposts.
