Review Quotes
H-France Review
"Alec Forshaw’s Brussels Art Nouveau: Architecture & Design, a travel guide intended for Anglophone visitors on foot or tram, is the right companion for this trek. Sized to have in-hand, and designed for discrete walks around Brussels’s Art Nouveau neighborhoods, the book is organized geographically with maps and color photographs that will help both a novice and a specialist navigate unfamiliar areas of the city."
