This review is from: Tropical Deco: Architecture and Designs of Old Miami Beach (Paperback)
I bought this a few years ago and read it only last week. It's one of those books you long to read but keep for later! It was the most fantastic book. The pictures were exquisite and the information that came with each chapter was informative but not excessive. I liked how the author divided the book up into chapters according to aspects of style and gave examples. I was in awe of the beauty of and inspiration behind each of these buildings. I'd truly love to visit the area and was happy to hear that many of the buildings are now protected and being renovated. I understand that the book is now over twenty years old but I believe it still relevant. Some of the buildings are perhaps gone and some may have changed so all the book captures is priceless. I will be keeping this close from now on and enjoy many more views.
