A Great Gift Idea!


With the holidays upon us, I stumbled upon a wonderful book, Art Deco Mailboxes: An Illustrated Design History by Karen Green & Lynne Lavelle.

I don't know about you, but I love American Art Deco architecture. These forgotten mailboxes were found in buildings and public spaces: the GE Building, Grand Central Terminal, the Woolworth Building, 29 Broadway, the St. Regis Hotel, York & Sawyer’s Salmon Tower, the Waldorf Astoria, and many more. Some are still in use. Take a peek inside...


Architects Ely Jacques Kahn and Albert Buchman designed this 1925 mailbox featuring a flora-and-fauna motif at 550 Seventh Avenue in New York.


The receptacle at 29 Broadway in New York was designed by architects Sloan and Robertson in 1931. Going against Post Office specifications, the door hinges on the left and locks on the right to incorporate the train’s headlight into the design.

The Courthouse letter box at 60 Centre Street in New York, designed by architect Guy Lowell in 1926, features classical ionic columns.

This floor-standing box at 540 Broad Street in Newark, New Jersey, was designed by Voorhees, Gmelin & Walker in 1929 and features decorative vines and flowers.

A mailbox at 116 John Street/1 Platt Street in New York was designed by Cutler with Louis A. Abramson in 1930

Designed by architects Starrett & Van Vleck, a 1927 letter box at 205 East 42nd Street in New York features airplanes in the night sky.


A full-color photographic survey of beautiful early mailboxes!

Available here on Amazon for under $20. Great gift for you or your Deco loving friends!
