I had a very exciting day today. Robin Grow, President of the Art Deco and Modernist Society dropped by with a copy of his book Melbourne Art Deco. It is so hot off the presses that he has only received a few copies so far.
Of course my interest are the photos. Robin used a lot of my photos in the book and we had a lot of fun reviewing images I already had and going around and taking new ones to fit in with the text. I am very pleased with the end result.
The book is 140 pages, soft cover with lots and lots of colour photos. Ten chapters cover topics should as Place of Business, Places to Relax, Places to Live In, Places to Shop, Melbourne on the Move and The Devil is in the Details.
I think my favourite picture is the etched-glass shark from Dalcrombie in the Dandenongs.
