    This large coffee table style book has beautifully full page illustrations of paintings, photograhy and other pieces from the 1930s. It is not only gorgeous to look at but, also explains the artists and the various governmental programs which assisted them. The book's greatest achievement is the documentation of such a wide variety of artistic endeavors from architecture to painting. It also includes excellent endnotes, credits and index.
