In the 1920s and 1930s Art Deco style influenced everything from art and architecture, interiors and furnishings, automobiles and boats, to the small, personal objects that are part of everyday life: cigarette cases and lighters, powder compacts, minaudières and cosmetic accessories, watches and jewelry, and even cameras. Surprisingly, despite the continuing strong interest in Art Deco, there has never previously been a book devoted to these objects, let alone one with such consistent, high-quality photography and carefully researched period illustrations, such as film stills and advertisements, that help bring the collectibles to life. The objects in this thematically structured book demonstrate Deco style at its most alluring, as well as the modernity, excitement and social revolution of the Jazz Age. The items then were the height of fashion, and to many they remain sought after as collectibles. They demonstrate an era of closer cooperation between designers and manufacturers, who aimed to produce goods that were not only fit for purpose, but also well made and beautiful.

An expansive take on American Art Deco that explores Chicago's pivotal role in developing the architecture, graphic design, and product design that came to define middle-class style in the twentieth century Frank Lloyd Wright’s lost Midway Gardens, the iconic Sunbeam Mixmaster, and Marshall Field’s famed window displays: despite the differences in scale and medium, each belongs to the broad current of an Art Deco style that developed in Chicago in the first half of the twentieth century. This ambitious overview of the city’s architectural, product, industrial, and graphic design between 1910 and 1950 offers a fresh perspective on a style that would come to represent the dominant mode of modernism for the American middle class. Lavishly illustrated with 325 images, the book narrates Art Deco’s evolution in 101 key works, carefully curated and chronologically organized to tell the story of not just a style but a set of sensibilities. Critical essays from leading figures in the field discuss the ways in which Art Deco created an entire visual universe that extended to architecture, advertising, household objects, clothing, and even food design. Through this comprehensive approach to one of the 20th century’s most pervasive modes of expression in America, Art Deco Chicago provides an essential overview of both this influential style and the metropolis that came to embody it.
