"No one but Dr Pevsner could have packed so much information into so compact a work or illustrated it more effectively."—The Times Literary Supplement

The turn of the nineteenth century saw an extraordinary flowering of invention in architecture and design, with two contrasting styles emerging—Art Nouveau and the International Style. Professor Pevsner brings a new clarity to an often confusing period, tracing—with the aid of nearly two hundred carefully chosen illustrations—the origins of twentieth-century ideas in architecture and the applied arts. Black-and-white illustrations throughout
