London Art Deco

The Art Deco style gained prominence at the 1925 Paris Exposition, after which each nation seemed to adapt its own distinct architectural style.

Less florid than the French or that of the United States, Great Britain's buildings reflected the country's imperial status. From the imposing style of the Savoy Hotel, through the ornate detail of the West End theatres, to Art Deco factories like the Hoover Building, they also demonstrated Britain's love of detail.

Remarkably, many of London's Art Deco buildings still survive their once grime-covered indigenous Portland stone now mostly scrubbed clean, beautifully displaying their many sculptural details.

This richly illustrated book offers a fascinating and detailed look at the Art Deco style from building design to decorative detail.
