A photo presentation and book signing by Miami Beach authors Don and Nina Worth.

Art Deco in Shanghai and Miami Beach was published as a coffee table book by Don and Nina Worth as the culmination of a cultural exchange program between the two cities, that began in 2005 when the authors visited Shanghai and met by chance with acclaimed architect Xing Tong He of China.

The limited edition book features 100 color photographs, 50 of each city, taken by noted photographer Deke Erh, who grew up amongst the Art Deco buildings of Shanghai. Texts were written by Tess Johnston of Shanghai and Clotilde Luce of Miami Beach. In pictorial form, the book reveals two disparate cities with surprising architectural similarities. Shanghai has the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in Asia.
