Transactions Focus: Elain Harwood’s Art Deco Britain: Buildings of the Interwar Years, reviewed by Hannah Parham

Posted: 14 April 2021

Welcome to the first in a new series, Transactions Focus, in which we shine a light on some of the great content which can be found in the Society’s Transactions, a scholarly journal which is issued free each year to our members.

Art Deco Britain also celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the founding of the Twentieth Century Society, another of the UK’s National Amenity Societies. As is highlighted within the review, the AMS and its kindred “combine scholarly research, publications, events, campaigning and advocacy to support the preservation of historic buildings”. The AMS is unique in that it concerns itself with buildings of all types and all ages, as well as their context.

You can read Hannah’s review of Art Deco Britain here.
