Book of the week: Hollywood in the 30s

Taschen highlights Tinseltown's golden era

Editor: Talar Bilemjian


Loaded with enchanting images and energetic words, Taschen’s new book 'Hollywood in the 30s' will take you back to one of the most cinematic decades of all time

From Frankenstein to Gone with the Wind, Hollywood in the 30s – which is now available to purchase from Taschen – profiles the movers and shakers of that time, as well as its pioneering developments across film directing, costume, scenery, music and more.

The 1930s was when the world of cinema moved from the silent era to the talking picture, a decade that celebrated the excess in the motion picture capital, Hollywood. Now, Taschen tributes the era's finest actors and directors, such as Jean Harlow, Greta Garbo, and the Marx brothers among others. The book features illustrations by Robert Nippoldt and words by film critic Daniel Kothenschulte, who together present a beautifully written and visually stimulating coffee-table book
