The best of the existing European Art Nouveau buildings, monuments and interiors are celebrated in this lavish book by one of Japan’s leading photographers.

Art Nouveau, which flourished throughout Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was one of the most significant movements in the history of decorative arts and architecture. Born of a reaction to the rise of industrialism and inspired by aesthetes such as Ruskin and Morris, it was a style that rapidly became recognized the world over, propagated by such architects as Gaudí, Guimard and Olbrich.

Although it flowered only briefly, and while a great many of its creations were destroyed, there remain throughout Europe myriad examples of Art Nouveau’s sinuous forms and organically inspired beauty, the best of which are captured in this book, the ultimate pictorial record of one of the most distinctive architectural styles ever.
