From Booklist:

Art deco is one of the more recent design styles but also one of the most influential. Art deco is given a renewed positioning and a massive one-source reference in this collector's guide, authored by a British antiques expert, with the aid of a coauthor. As to be expected, the visuals are superb, providing a magnificent perspective on art deco inspirations for furniture, textiles, glass, ceramics, jewelry, silver- and metalware, sculpture, and posters and graphics. Far more than a list, a photographic gallery, and a narrative, every page yields valuable information, whether it's about an unknown designer, unusual facts to know, and even auction-price estimates. A colorful appreciation of and guidelines to the marriage of art and industry in the 1920s and 1930s. Glossary, directory of dealers and auction houses and their source codes, and directory of museums appended. Barbara Jacobs
