The Sources of Modern Architecture and Design|Nikolaus Pevsner|$14.95|The turn of the nineteenth century saw an extraordinary flowering of invention in architecture and design. Two contrasting styles emerged--Art Nouveau and the International style. Professor Pevsner brings a new clarity to an often confusing period, tracing, with the aid of nearly two hundred carefully chosen illustrations, the origins of twentieth-century ideas in architecture and the applied arts. 198 illus., 51 in color.

"No one but Dr. Pevsner could have packed so much information into so compact a work or illustrated it more effectively." --The Times Literary Supplement
