Rediscovering Art Deco USA – A Nationwide Tour of Architectural Delights (Viking Studio Books, 1994) presents American art deco highlights from the 1920s–1930s.
It was during the 1920s and 1930s – the period of what is now known as the Art Deco style – that many of the handsomest buildings created by American architects were erected. Because New York contains some of the most famous skyscrapers of that time – the Empire State, the Chrysler, the RCA – the supreme elegance and beauty of the style is somewhat familiar to us all. But what about the rest of the U.S.A., where many Art Deco treasures can still be seen and appreciated?
Those buildings are to be found in this book, which is n important account of the grass-roots movement in American to preserve for posterity the great examples of Art Deco architecture that still remain (…) The result is a marvelous nationwide tour of the architectural delights to be found in Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas and Fort Worth, Detroit, Hoover Dam, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Saint Paul, New York, Philadelphia, San Franscisco, Seattle, Tulsa, and Washington, D.C.
