The definitive guide to Britain's most impressive Art Deco buildings.

Despite the huge popularity of Art Deco architecture, there is little that really explains the what, where, and how of Art Deco buildings in Britain. With this beautifully photographed volume, leading architectural historian Elain Harwood brings her trademark clarity and enthusiasm to the subject, from the genre's origins to the influence of international styles. She looks at houses, offices, factories, entertainment venues, and the architects who created them--including such specific buildings as the Midland Hotel in Morecambe; Eltham Palace, Broadcasting House, and the Carreras Cigarette Factory in London; Finella in Cambridge; St Christopher church in Liverpool; and Tindale Lido in Plymouth.
