Brussels Art Nouveau
Architecture & Design
Distributed for Unicorn Press Ltd
This book offers a detailed look at the city that could rightly claim to have been the capital of Art Nouveau–Brussels. The first comprehensive guide to the Art Nouveau experience in Brussels, it presents close looks at key buildings in eleven different parts of the city, buildings designed and decorated by some of the greatest names in the movement, including Victor Horta, Paul Hankar, and Henry Van de Velde. Descriptive accounts of each building are matched with biographical information about their creators, while more than one hundred and fifty newly commissioned color photographs highlight key features and a dozen new maps help visitors plan their trips. The resulting book is an unprecedented guide to a city that even today remains deeply marked by Art Nouveau, a living remnant of a powerful artistic flourishing.
