The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s

by Stephen Harrison (Author)

This highly illustrated book examines 1920s American style. It captures the 1960s jazz beat. This booming decade saw a revival of cultural inventiveness, mostly funded by Americans.

Due to the large number of Europeans who moved to the United States and the number of Americans who wanted to visit Europe’s cultural capitals, a wave of experimental ideas began to travel back and forth across the Atlantic. This created a creative vocabulary that reflected the ecstatic mood of the time.

The Jazz Age American Style shows how art, design, architecture, and technology changed in the 1920s and early 1930s. It shows that the United States is an integral part of the new Art Deco luxury goods market.

This vast catalogue shows how America and the rest of the world worked to create a unique visual representation of modernity. It has hundreds of full-colour illustrations and essays by the two best decorative arts historians.
