It is a concise survey of the rise of art nouveau in the late nineteenth century in Europe (with some Japanese influence) and its continuing influence during key periods of artistic development in design to the present day. Examples of the style follow essays on the key figures of each period, mainly centred on Vienna, Darmstadt and Glasgow." - Amazon Review.
