This book, published in 1980, is somewhat of a celebration of the craft of neon, with a survey of what has been accomplished, mainly in the world of the electric sign. Its main purpose, however, is an attempt to demonstrate the potential future of neon, with many architectural, sculptural and environmental possibilities.
The book itself is in mainly good condition, with the appropriately vivid covers and illustrations retaining their bright colours. There are some very slight smudges and creases around the edges of the covers, including a small amount of fraying to the bottom right corner of the front cover. Otherwise, all pages within are pristine with no marks.
A great book which touches upon things such as American self-image and the technical craft of neon, perfect for artists or designers.
