Lovers of the eclectic style that dominated international design from 1925 to the early 1950s arrive in Montreal on May 24 for the 10th World Congress on Art Deco. In celebration of this event, the McGill Library would like to welcome you to join us as we re-discover the magic of a period that defined an era.

Exhibitions in several locations will explore lithographs alive with the energy and excitement of the twenties, uncover the unique fashion and accessories of the period in the pages of the Gazette du bon ton: art, modes et frivolités, highlight the distinctive book design infused by the colourful and energetic spirit of the times, walk us through life in Montreal in the period and offer insight into the ongoing influence on modern design with a display of recent publications on all aspects of Art Deco.
