I've written previously about the refurbished foyer at the Hotel Edison in New York. This is the outside of the hotel, a mass of columns and stepped levels. It is a vast building yet it is difficult to get a sense of just how big because everything is BIG in NYC and W 47th Street is relatively narrow so it isn't really possible to step back and get a really good view.
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.
