I couldn't believe my (bad) luck. In the few seconds between the time I had got out of the car and the time I was in position to take a picture of this Art Deco house called Tiro Moana in Mount Victoria, the people who lived at the back of the property had parked their car blocking most of the lower floor. Truth be known the ground floor wasn't that interesting and I was still able to get a nice photo of the gate.
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.
