I bought this book because I am a fan of all things styled in the modes of Art Deco and Modernism. This book does not disappoint. It is richly illustrated and supplemented with informative narrative teaching the reader about the effects of the Machine Age on style and culture in the first decades of the 20th Century.
Similarly, I am a scholar of the works of sculptor Lee Lawrie who created the Atlas at Rockefeller Center, as well as more than a dozen other bas-relief sculptures at the complex. I found the book by Googling Lawrie. Lawrie was one of the premier Art Deco sculptors in years between the Wars. (Lawrie has a number of works you may view by Googling Bisonwerks and visiting my site.)
The work covers a broad collection of subjects: paintings, sculpture and the fine arts, industrial design on consumer products, architecture, furniture. It is literally peppered with illustrations, with a surprisingly large number of color plates.
It has tons of photos and text on skyscrapers, bridges, Hoover Dam and other examples of public works infrastructure that reflect the Machine Age.
I own several pieces of Revereware pots and pans, but never realized that their design traces back to the Machine Age.
The book includes nearly all of the designers of the age, like Bel Geddes, and Buckminster Fuller, with examples of their work, showing both models and actual autos, like the Dymaxion Car, Streamlined airplanes and locomotives.
If you dig all thing Deco or Machine age, I can't recommend a better resource. The book is extremely fun to just sit and leaf through to look at the pictures. It runs about 350 pages, the majority of which include illustrations. It is a wonderful book.
