An exhaustive collection of London's Art Deco style - from factories and underground stations to theatres and private residences. More than 200 stunning photographs offer a visual journey through London and beyond. 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 that 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 to 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.
