The newest addition to the Art Deco series, British Modern is the first to focus on Great Britain's contribution. An essential resource for graphic artists, designers, and anyone interested in advertising or art history, British Modern contains over 200 reproductions of classic Art Deco work from the 20s, 30s, and early 40s. Here are RAF posters, cigarette packages, post office greeting cards, Vogue magazine covers, travel promotionals, ads for London nightclubs, and other examples of Deco style. Some of the best pieces turn up in the most unlikely places -- the tiny packages in which razors were sold, for example, yield an impressive display of bold and beautiful Deco artistry. Copious inspiration for designer or artist, British Modern also presents a novel portrait of English life in the first half of the 20th century.
