"This illustrated book explores the extraordinary visual language of the style. Borrowing from the exotic cultures of Ancient Egypt, Meso-America, the oriental East and Africa and from the man-made world of skyscrapers and machines, Art Deco developed a highly distinctive iconography. It embraced the natural world of plants and animals, sunbursts and fountains, together with the geometric forms of avant-garde painting and design, and eventually found expression in the symbolic idiom of streamlining. Deeply eclectic and highly decorative, Art Deco celebrated fantasy, fun and glamour - themes which still strike a popular chord and account for Art Deco's huge appeal throughout the world today."--Jacket."@en ;
