Description

This book provides a complete retrospective of French Art Deco textiles between the two wars, drawn from the fullest of historical sources. By turns sumptuous or minimalist, featuring extravagant floral patterns or simple arrangements of shapes and colours, timelessly classical or celebrating the most recent triumphs of contemporary life, these fabrics will give endless inspiration to designers and collectors, and enthral anyone eager to understand the role textiles played in the evolution of Art Deco.
