"A thorough overview of the regional development of art deco architecture in the greater Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland, mertopolitan area... The two cities' economies and cultural histories serve as an interesting background to showcase how the emerging modern architecture movement of the twentieth century could unite both cities, despite their differences... The strengths of Striner, founding president of the Art Deco Society of Washington, and Melissa Blair, a Baltimore art historian, are evident in their comprehensive review and analysis of the entire genre of built works in the Chesapeake and Potomac area."

"Overall the authors have taken a compelling topic and treated it in an outstanding manner... Most libraries will want to purchase this volume as it is a fascinating tale of two cities and how modern architecture shaped their future."

"Striner is one of the most knowledgeable individuals about Art Deco in Washington, D.C.—this is an important book."
