Book Overview
Winner of a 2017-2018 New York City Book Award presented by the New York Society Library Of all the world's great cities, perhaps none is so defined by its Art Deco architecture as New York. Lively and informative, New York Art Deco leads readers step-by-step past the monuments of the 1920s and '30s that recast New York as the world's modern metropolis. Anthony W. Robins, New York's best-known Art Deco guide, includes an introductory essay describing the Art Deco phenomenon, followed by eleven walking tour itineraries in Manhattan--each accompanied by a map designed by legendary New York cartographer John Tauranac--and a survey of Deco sites across the four other boroughs. Also included is a photo gallery of sixteen color plates by nationally acclaimed Art Deco photographer Randy Juster. In New York Art Deco , Robins has distilled thirty years' worth of experience into a guidebook for all to enjoy at their own pace.
