Aerial photographs and text by David King Gleason.
Aerial views of cities have been photograper Gleason's niche. He's previously captured New Orleans and Boston, revealing each port city in ways that emphasize their relationship to the water and their ethnic neighborhoods. A foreword by Beth Dunlop, architecture critic for the Miami Herald , details the landmarks Gleason presents in this aesthetically stunning book. We see the Mediterranean Rival mansions of Coral Gables, Miami Beach's Art Deco hotels, and examples of postmodernism. The result is a portrait of an American boomtown, seen from a dramatic perspective. Of special interest to architectural collections.
