Reviews - What do customers think about Las Vegas Vintage Graphics (Icons)?

Vintage Vegas  Nov 19, 2003
I would have expected a place like Las Vegas to produce a ton of graphic material but I was disappointed to find so little inside this latest Taschen 'Icons' paperback. Basically there are too many tourist brochure photos rather than the printed ephemera I have found in other paperbacks in this excellent series.

Still, there is some interesting material, the intro essay by W R Wilkerson, the eight photos looking east and west along Fremont Street over the decades, the photos of the amazing neon signs, thanks to the leading Vegas sign maker, the Young Electric Company and the chapter dealing with gambling images.

For Vegas fans I can recommend an inexpensive hardback, 'Las Vegas: Then and Now' (ISBN 1571458530) by Su Kim Chung, 138 photos taken over the decades with the newer ones taken from the same place as the originals, the changes are amazing. Also worth a look is 'Faulous Las Vegas in the 50s' (ISBN 188331805x) by Fred Basten and Charles Phoenix, plenty of photos and graphic material presented in a book with a design as flamboyant as the place itself.
