Art Deco the worlds greatest art is a book that I brought for my collection from a well known bookshop that was closing down several years ago. All the books were being sold on offer and as I had a birthday coming up I asked my husband to come book shopping with me as a birthday treat. I saw this book on the shelf and my husband brought it for me as a birthday gift. This is one of my favourite antiques reference books because it is so easy to use. It is one of those books that I could spend hours browsing through just looking at the lovely pictures. All through the book there is text on one side with a picture on the page opposite. The book covers all subjects of the Art Deco movement from buildings to collectables. The picture on the front cover (above) is a painting by the famous Art Deco artist Tamara de Lempicka and the painting is called The Sleeping Girl. Art Deco was published by Flame Tree Publishing and was first published in 2005. Flame Tree Publishing have an interesting website where you can buy books, calendars, diaries, ebooks, adult colouring books etc. all with an `arty' theme. This website would be a good place to buy gifts for people who love anything to do with art.
