Book Review: Art Deco Interiors


 
Art Deco Interiors, by Henry Delacroix is a delightfully intriguing art book.

It was first published in Paris as Decoration Moderne dans l'Interieur in 1935. This book includes a translation of the original Introduction, as well as a new Publisher's Note.

According to the Publisher's Note, "This exceptionally beautiful collection of forty-eight residential and professional interiors originally appeared in 1935.... Complied by French architect Henry Delacroix (1907-1974), the portfolio reveals the forward-thinking designs of numerous interior designers and architects of the time and was influenced by the Art Deco movement.... The final image, Plate 48, is one of Henry Delacroix's own designs."

Art Deco Interiors is a lovely book that's geared towards various ages, from teenagers to older generations. It's especially recommended for those interested in interior design, architecture, and/or art. 


Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
