    Pretty much any site involving South Beach Miami. That is Art Deco to the extreme, I'll have to look it up.

    Looks like no one really knows what Art Deco is. South Beach is like Art Deco by Walt Disney.

    Unfortunately, I don't know any sites myself.

    By the way, my own logo is quite art deco.

    Ok that is fair enough. The Lana Landis site shows some classic diner elements though the pin-up style really comes later. I would place this in the WWII or 50s era.

    True art deco is expressed in 20s and 30s New York. The ideal example is the Christler Building. While classic diners were begun from the inspiration of 30s deco they kinda took on a life of their own and blended with later pop culture.

    Agreed, this has some Art Deco elements in it, but it's a stretch to call it Art Deco. Too much wood, non-radial dials, etc, etc.
