"Documenting the French design artistry of three generations of the Jourdain Family, this book presents Parisian design for over one hundred years. The book's primary focus is Frantz Jourdain (1847-1935) who was a leading practitioner of Art Nouveau architecture and championed the renewal of singularly French traditions of decoration. His ideas on adornment and embellishment helped to preserve Paris as a citadel of taste & luxury in the early twentieth century." Massive coffee table book in English. A beautiful production. Edouard Schenck, Henri Sauvage, Charles Sarazin, Eugene Grasset, Auguste Perret, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Pierre Chareau, etc. 414 pages with index, illustrated throughout.
