Description of this Book

This is an invaluable location guide for any traveller in Australia and New Zealand seeking art deco locations and for all lovers of 1920s and 30s nostalgia and all that that entails: the opulence and decadence of the legendary Jazz Age era. Whether you are visiting down under for business or pleasure or living locally and just wish to have a further insight into the art deco legacy left behind for us all to enjoy, this region-by-region guide to both countries guide highlights buildings and facades to see, local accommodation, theatres, monuments and associated places of interest. The guide has been compiled from the author's personal visits and her extensive research, resulting in a unique extravaganza of art deco words and pictures that any layman or aficionado will find a great companion to this iconic era.
