Hillier, Bevis, The Style of the Century, New York, Watson-Guptill Publications, 1998, 2nd edition, lg 8vo (9.75" x 7.25"), SB, b/w photo illus paper wraps, VG / none. Edgeworn.

280 pp. 40 color & 310 b/w illustrations. From the first edition of 1983, with a new chapter by Kate McIntyre. From the rear cover: "In the first edition of his enduring chronicle Bevis Hillier parceled the changing styles and lifestyles of the twentieth century up to 1980 into an authoritative and highly entertaining design history, from Art Nouveau and Art Deco to Psychedelia and Punk. Now at the end of the Millennium, and as we grapple with 'hyperreality' and a new nostalgia, an account of the Eighties and Nineties completes this seamless survey of architecture, interiors, fashion, graphics, and everyday objects which has long had an unique appeal for students, collectors and anyone interested in our abiding appetite for style."    [Book ID # 1149]
