This is a coffee table book I was inspired to write while serving on the Board of Directors of The Miami Design Preservation League (2002 -2007)—the organization responsible for preserving Miami Beach’s Art Deco heritage. Published in 2007, it was the first book focused on defining the style that inspired Mumbai’s Art Deco Architecture (the city of my youth). I was humbled to learn it became an award winning Top 10 Bestseller soon after its publication. You are invited to learn more about this magnificent heritage from the featured coverage.

It was both an honour and joy to present the book at many Art Deco organizations across North America following the publisher’s book release in India. It helped bridge a cultural gap from Miami to Mumbai in this unique Art Deco heritage!
