This new book Modernism London Style: The Art Deco Heritage published by Hirmer Verlag explores the art deco heritage of London through 300 photographs taken by Niels Lehmann. A portrait of the city during the interwar years, it chronicles the creativity of the artists and designers of the period and the themes in the city’s culture that helped shape their work. With essays and an introduction by architecture scholar Adam Caruso, the book investigates some of the key features that characterise art deco; from floral and animal motifs to Egyptian themes. For readers planning a trip to London and hoping to place these striking buildings, the book also includes a detailed register of buildings as well as maps. To purchase the book, see The Book Depository where it is currently on offer with a 41% discount.
