The style was also adopted by British architects, but, until now, there has been little that really explains the what, where and how of Art Deco buildings in Britain. In Art Deco Britain, leading architecture historian and writer Elain Harwood, brings her trademark clarity and enthusiasm to the subject as she explores Britain's Art Deco buildings.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eArt Deco Britain, published in association with the Twentieth Century Society, is the definitive guide to the architectural style in Britain.
