Dream Palaces of Hollywood's Golden Age
The so-called Golden Age of Hollywood of the late 1920s through to the late 1940s, coincided with a highly flamboyant phase in the history of American design, such as Art Deco and a revival of Period Styles such as Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial. The result was a pure romantic spectacle exhibiting the 'anything is possible' ideology that embodied Hollywood. Wallace shows us the best of these buildings through 200 new colour pictures by Juergen Nogai, and through Wallace's revealing of the titillating histories of each place.
