Streamline Moderne is an international style of Art Deco architecture and design that emerged in the 1930s. It was inspired by aerodynamic design. Streamline architecture emphasized curving forms, long horizontal lines, and sometimes nautical elements.

This illustrated handbook (80+ photographs, many snapped by the author) recounts the history of Streamline Moderne and its relationship to industrial design; details how to identify Streamline Moderne structures; explains how to conduct an architectural survey, and describes how to successfully nominate a building to the National Historic Register. It includes discussions of the various aspects of the expressed style and links to well-written National Historic Register Nominations to use as models. It also includes a survey of Streamline Moderne houses in National City, California.
