Art Nouveau and Art Deco Bookbinding 1880-1940

180.00

First edition, hardback, published by Thames and Hudson, 1989

By Alastair Duncan and Georges De Bartha

Covering the creatively fruitful 60 years between 1880 and 1940, this book is the first major study of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco influence on bookbinding. The sinuous and organic shapes of Nouveau, and the ancient yet modernist forms of Deco lend themselves to their materially rich and tactile surface of the bound book. With short biographies of the designers and information about the materials and production of the books makes this an all-encompassing document on the subject.
