An exquisite, heavily-illustrated comprehensive document of the impressive artistic output in Europe during the 1920's. "Le Arti d’Oggi" was originally published in Italy in 1930. This near-facsimile edition of that rare and much sought-after book follows the format of the original exactly, presenting a dazzling selection of European architecture, interiors, furniture and decorative arts from the 1920s.

The book is divided into six sections:

• Part One - architecture of the period, and includes work by, among others, Walter Gropius, Eliel Saarinen, Peter Behrens, Josef Hoffmann and Gio Ponti
• Part Two - interiors and furniture, including homes and public buildings designed by such famous architects as Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann
• Part Three - metal, features a vast array of exquisite objects, from tea sets designed by Josef Hoffman and beautiful Cartier jewels to Edgar Brandt's wrought iron pieces
• Part Four - ceramics, includes a rich collection of Danish and Hungarian porcelain, such masterworks as the vases and tableware designed by Gio Ponti for Richard-Ginori
• Part Five - glasswork by such designers as Vittorio Zecchin and Guido Balsamo Stella..
• Part Six - lace, embroidery, printed fabrics and leather, including lace centrepieces, Lenci dolls, shawls by Depero, wonderful Guido Ravasi-designed silks and wallpapers by Wiener Werkstätte.

This astonishing treasury, including over 800 pictures, will be highly prized by bibliophiles, collectors and connoisseurs as it appeals to collectors in a broad range of disciplines and specializations: architecture, design, furniture, metalwork, jewellery, ceramics, glass, lace, embroidery, and antiques.
