Good retrospective of an otherwise hidden era2 Oct. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
A very good quality hardcover book - well bound & worth more than I paid for it! It's disappointing that so many of the photos are of decrepit old signs, but even then it is possible to see the craftsmanship that went into fabricating these ambitious public lighting displays. There are a number of the original layout drawings presented here as well.
My biggest beef is that there are many references to "page xx", but the numbering of pages stops after page 20. What a stupid oversight on the part of the publisher!
Still, this is a worthwhile book for anyone interested in the history and/or fabrication of neon.
