This snap from the back of a cab in Kenya's capital Nairobi shows a tantalising glimpse of an Art Deco building. By the looks of it, a small scale skyscraper, maybe 10 storeys tall. I wish I knew more. I wish I had got the chance to go back and explore it some more.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
