The National Trust Guide to Art Deco in America

Author: David Gebhard

Two distinctive modes of architecture evoke a universal style popularized in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s: Art Deco embodied a colorful, decorative, and geometric look, while the Streamline Moderne style contained a sleeker and more industrial look. Gebhard (Los Angeles: An Architectural Guide, Gibbs Smith, 1994) begins with two brief articles providing an overview of the sources and proponents of these styles. The rest of the book is a travelog that takes a glimpse at more than 500 examples of notable buildings and structures using these design features. The guide is divided into six regional sections and arranged alphabetically by state within each section. Each entry includes the location and date of the structure, the name of the architect or firm, and a brief description of the building or monument. A selected reading list of books and articles concludes the guide. Recommended for larger travel and architecture collections.
