Review

"...a brilliant document of the times...a work which uses history knowledgeably, skillfully, and creatively: a rarity." Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians "...professionally informed, competitively astute, and perversely brilliant..." The Yale Review "...these studies are brilliant...the kind of art history and theory that is rarely produced." The New York Times Ada Louis Huxtable

Format: Paperback
Currently writing my final year architecture thesis on symbolism, and this book has come in great use!

Its orientation around vegas is easily related to other symbolism!

Its a must read if your on the plane to vegas! It doesnt revolve completely around architecture I would recommend anyone who plans to visit! Also great illustrations and lots of pictures!
