At head of cover title: Twentieth Century Society.

The definitive guide to Art Deco buildings in Britain. The perennially popular style of Art Deco influenced architecture and design all over the world in the 1920s and 1930s from elegant Parisian theatres to glamorous Manhattan skyscrapers.

The style was also adopted by British architects, but, until now, there has been little that really explains the what, where and how of Art Deco buildings in Britain.

In Art Deco Britain, leading architecture historian and writer Elain Harwood, brings her trademark clarity and enthusiasm to the subject as she explores Britain's Art Deco buildings. Art Deco Britain, published in association with the Twentieth Century Society, is the definitive guide to the architectural style in Britain.

The book begins with an overview of the international Art Deco style, and how this influenced building design in Britain.

The buildings covered include Houses and Flats; Churches and Public Buildings; Offices; Shops, Showrooms and Cafes; Hotels and Public Houses; Cinemas, Theatres and Concert Halls; Sports Buildings; Industrial Premises and Transport Buildings.
