Read full description of the books Vienna 1900: Art, Architecture & Design:

This is not a book to read cover-to-cover - I pick it up and read bits and then put it back down. But Kirk Varnedoe does an excellent job with the exquisite subject matter at his disposal; indeed, I think it would be difficult not to. There were parts that surprised me, though, which I found set the book apart from other books on Viennese art and design in the early twentieth century. My favorite are the dresses designed by Gustav Klimt. Seriously. How do those not get covered in more books?

I found this book at Lorem Ipsum, and only bought it because Kirk Varnedoe was a much-lauded curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York who founded the program of artist-curated shows that is still going on now. . . in other words, I trusted him to write a good book on art. And he did. Boo-ya. The Viennese artists from this time period are fascinating (partially because they are just so strange, but also because their work is instantly recognizable and mind-blowingly ahead of it's time) and it is great to have a book that discusses them.
