I've designed this book cover for SB so that he can teach himself the fundamentals of one of the greatest design periods of the 20th century. Mind you when he sees the thread title he probably won't even read it -ha ha, only joking SB.

Hi John I totally respect the work involved and the design standards and concepts of Art Deco, I totally understand why some people love it. I am just not made keen on some of it. Clarice Clift ( I think that's her name ) wouldn't interest me in the slightest. But we all have to respect other peoples views don't we. SB

Funny you should say that SB, Clarice Cliff, she yes a woman, has no interest for me either, also I can't stand Piccaso or any form of modern art. I like realism where it looks like a photograph, now that's art, very clever, and hard to do.
