This catalogue organizes roughly 300 examples of silver, glass, industrial design, furniture, medals, jewelry, and printed textiles into thematic groups that chart the aesthetic and social trends that defined American design from the Jazz Age to the Space Age. The authors consider modernism broadly--from handmade luxury goods to mass-produced housewares--establishing a context for the objects within larger international developments in architecture, avant-garde art, and scientific innovation."--Publisher description."@en
