This volume strikes us as particularly nice, and includes great illustrated articles about for instance Joseph Hoffmann and his Viennese Secessionist room designs, coloured etchings, art nouveau artists, jewelry and enameling designs, medals and plaquettes (numismatics), Japanese tobacco boxes, furniture and home decorative arts, etc. A really pleasing book to browse and read if turn of the century/ art nouveau. arts & crafts style art interests you.
