The Golden Age of Graphic Art and Illustration
Beginning with an exploration of the ideas and influences that contributed to the exuberant new style of the 1920s, this illustrated survey covers the two areas in which Art Deco triumphed: fashion and advertising. It looks at the work of artists such as Tamara de Lempicka, Erté, René Lalique and Georges Barbier in fashion, and AM Cassandre and Paul Colin in advertising, but also describes the media in which they worked and the social context of their extraordinary graphics.

Masterpieces of Art
Beginning with Michael Robinson's introduction to the 'New Aesthetic' of the Arts and Crafts Movement, this volume presents around 90 reproductions of textile, ceramics and wallpaper designs and miscellaneous artworks by some of the movement's finest artists. Along with perennially popular designs by CFA Voysey, William Morris and John Henry Dearle, there are less familiar works, including Edward Burne-Jones's stained-glass Viking Ship and The Tree of Personal Effort, a watercolour by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
