Reviews - What do customers think about Decorative Art 60s (Klotz)?
A must have for anyone collecting the genre. Nov 13, 2000
This book offers a glimpse into the design world of the 1960s like no other. Many vintage photos showing furniture in authentic room settings. Each section, Glass, Ceramics, Lighting, Textiles and Furniture, show the reader objects that are rarely seen anywhere else.
On the negative side, there is little detailed text on the specific objects beyond each photo's caption. The fact that many of the photographs are vintage allows for many grainy images.
That said, what this book is lacking as a text based reference guide, it more than makes up for in the shear volume of decorative items pictured.
