About this Item

Cloth. Near Fine/Fair. 1st Edition. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Art Deco was damned as too popular and too decorative. For years it was dismissed as 'misguided' architecture. Then the new awareness o f historical preservation revealed the bond between the three Art Deco styles and modern American history. The Zigzag 1920s (skyscrapers symbolizing progress); the Streamline 1930s (curved lines for s peed); the solid P. W. A. Classical style of the Great Depression and the New Deal. This book reveals the significant contribution of the southwest in this architectural era-and how Tulsa was unique. In a rhapsody of terra cotta, the skyline of the "Oil Capitol of the World" sprang up on the prairie in the 1920s, boasting the works of three towering architects-Barry Byrne, Bruce Goff and Frank Lloyd Wright. This exciting combination-the jazz age tempo, the oil boom extravagance and the architects' imagination-gave Tulsa a rare Art Deco heritage. DJ in mylar with considerable wear and rubbing, so me chipping. Boards are turquoise with a red design on front and red printing on spine. Moderate wear on corners and spine o/w excellent. Sage eps. Profusely illustrated with b/w and color photos. Professional book dealer since 1975. All orders are processed promptly and packaged with the utmost care. Satisfaction guaranteed.
