Art Deco In Review 2020


This 124 page colourful coffee table book tells the story of the 2020 Napier Art Deco Weekend. With casual snapshots of the festival by local, Max Patmoy, you may even see yourself on the pages! Read a review from Art Deco Trust Chair, Michael Fowler below.



"The Napier Art Deco Festival had its beginnings when a founding committee member of the Art Deco Trust, Roger Morris, suggested in late 1988 that an Art Deco Weekend should be held along the lines of the one held in Miami Beach, Florida. Everyone on the committee agreed and so Napier Art Deco Weekend (as it was then) was born.


Today, we now hold the Napier Art Deco Festival over five days, boasting over two hundred individual events, and attracting around 40,000 people from New Zealand and around the globe. 


This event has been a highlight festival for Hawke’s Bay and a New Zealand Events award winner. It continues to be an international picture of glamour, influential design and the colour of a bygone era.  


You can’t help but feel the excitement and fun when you look through this book and see just some of the revellers attending the 2020 Napier Art Deco Festival. The Art Deco fever is prevalent in all ages and cultures, a collaboration of active remembrance of a vibrant period marred by the 1931 Napier Earthquake.


This is a great snapshot of the 2020 Art Deco Festival, a keepsake to share the celebration and wonder of the art deco era."
