Le Arti d'Oggi was originally published in Italy in 1930. This near-facsimile edition of that rare and much sought-after book follows the format of the original exactly, presenting in over eight hundred original photographs a dazzling selection of architecture, interiors, furniture and decorative arts produced in Europe throughout the 1920s.

The book is divided into six sections, as follows:

Part One deals with the architecture of the period, and includes work by, among others, Walter Gropius, Eliel Saarinen, Peter Behrens, Josef Hoffmann and Gio Ponti, as well as works by lesser-known architects that prove equally significant when illustrating the stylistic features of the period.

Part Two explores the era's interiors and furniture, including homes and public buildings designed by such famous architects as Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, as well as furnishings produced by Galeries Lafayette and D.I.M.

Part Three, Metal, features a vast array of exquisite objects, from teasets designed by Josef Hoffmann and beautiful Cartier jewels to Edgar Brandt's wrought-iron pieces and Dagobert Peche's frames.

Part Four, Ceramics, includes a rich collection of Danish and Hungarian porcelain, such masterworks as the vases and tableware designed by Gio Ponti for Richard-Ginori, and pieces crafted by the School of Ceramics in Faenza, as well as many pieces originating from a variety of different schools and national collections.

Part Five features glasswork by such designers as Vittorio Zecchin and Guido Balsamo Stella, and a collection of Czech glassware including well-known makers of Bohemian crystal.

Part Six focuses on lace, embroidery, printed fabrics and leather, including lace table centerpieces, Lenci dolls, shawls by Depero, wonderful Guido Ravasi-designed silks and wallpapers by the Wiener Werkstatte.

This astonishing treasury will be highly prized by bibliophiles, collectors and connoisseurs in a broad range of artistic disciplines.
