The National Trust Guide to Art Deco in America

David Gebhard, Author John Wiley & Sons $20 (278p) ISBN 978-0-471-14386-4
Architects in the 1920s and 1930s wished to ""seek out new forms or modifications of old forms to express the continually changing character and accelerated tempo of the new age,"" David Gebhard states in The National Trust Guide to Art Deco in America. Two of the most famous edifices of this forward-looking movement are the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building in New York City, radiant examples of the art deco and streamline moderne styles. But New York is far from the only place where one may find such architectural gems. Gebhard, who died this year, located sites in each region of the country, by state and city.
