"Art Deco, the most glamorous style of the twentieth century, swept across the globe in the 1920s and 1930s, altering the skylines of cities from Shanghai to Rio, and adding an exotic vibrant edge to everything from cinema and fashion to ocean liners and automobiles." "This illustrated book explores the extraordinary visual language of the style. Borrowing from the exotic cultures of Ancient Egypt, Meso-America, the oriental East and Africa and from the man-made world of skyscrapers and machines, Art Deco developed a highly distinctive iconography. It embraced the natural world of plants and animals, sunbursts and fountains, together with the geometric forms of avant-garde painting and design, and eventually found expression in the symbolic idiom of streamlining. Deeply eclectic and highly decorative, Art Deco celebrated fantasy, fun and glamour - themes which still strike a popular chord and account for Art Deco's huge appeal throughout the world today."--BOOK JACKET.

The first substantial look at Art Deco's enormous influence on the motion picture and on the New Woman of the 1920s and '30s. Fischer situates the Art Deco movement within the dynamics of American consumerism, revealing how its appeal to women was used to sell cosmetics, clothing, home furnishings, jewelry, and objets d'art. She also investigates its implications for the star system. The book examines a large body of film work, from a variety of genres, in terms of set and costume design as well as narrative structure, and extends its conception of the cinematic "text" beyond the screen to the realm of movie theater design.
