Book List

The Art Deco Society of New York has been compiling the below list of books and materials that focus on Art Deco architecture, design, and the culture of the 1920s and 30s. This listing is by no means complete; it is a work-in-progress and is always expanding. If you would like to share a book that you think should be added to the list, please email ADSNY at Info@ArtDeco.org.
