Melbourne Art Deco (2nd Edition)
Melbourne is a great Art Deco city. The heyday of the 1930s brought the construction of some of Melbourne's most striking and beautiful buildings. From the towering police headquarters in Russell Street to the tiniest detail of a suburban interior, Art Deco styling maintains an enduring presence in all facets of Melbourne's cultural life. In Melbourne Art Deco, Robin Grow, President of the Art Deco & Modernism Society Inc., examines the rise, fall and resurgence of Art Deco in Melbourne from the 1930s to the present day. With contemporary images by David Thompson and a team of photographers, supported by archival material, Melbourne Art Deco offers an invaluable insight into the history and current state of one of the city's most popular styles. First published in 2009, the book has been updated in 2014.
