Description:
The first book on the little-known architectural firm of George & Edward Blum, two brothers who designed some of the most striking apartment buildings in early twentieth century New York City. Featuring complex brick patterning, exceptionally detailed terra cotta tilework, and other distinctive facade embellishments, the buildings reflect the brother's embrace of French architectural trends. Written in accessible text and packed with color and b+w images, the book is a thoroughly engaging missing chapter in the architectural history of  New York City.
