Author Judith Singer Cohen explains in her entertaining prose how Art Deco, a cosmopolitan decorative mode flaunted in the fashionable apartments and commerical places in New York's elite society, came to flourish across the nation, even in the conserative stronghold of Fort Worth. In the Fort Worth neighborhoods that grew up in the thirties, there are many extant commerical and residential structures of the last Art Deco phase-the Streamline Moderne. Many of these fine examples of the style have already been razed or remodeled beyond recognition and more are threatened by developments. Cowtown Moderne will be an invaluable record of a unique period in architecture and in Fort Worth. Bookseller Inventory # 43932
