I love Art Deco, and reading the book helped me understand and appreciate it a lot more. From the stories about each of the buildings I learned some interesting facts about Canadian history.
A fabulous tour-de-ville of the great as well as the more modest of Art Deco design from coast-to-coast across this great land. Interesting, well-written and filled with superb colour plates of Canadian art deco buildings, it is the definitive work on this intriguing period in Canadian architectural development.
Not only does the book capture a slice of Canadiana, the author has humanized the images by touching upon the people and their visions. Because of this book, my travels across Canada in the future will have another dimension of appreciation.
