I love the look of the thin smooth horizontal bands against the brown bricks of the bulk of the façade of this apartment block in Montreal. And, naturally, the shorter bands, wrapping around the corner, conform to the Art Deco Rule of Three, although on the outer corners the windows cut into the pattern. An interesting effect but I'm not sure that I like it.
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.
