San Francisco Neon: Survivors and Lost Icons

This product is sold out.


The photographs in this book provide a tour of San Francisco's surviving neon landscape and 10 lost iconic neon signs. This gives the book a feel of the''real'' city with its many cultures and neighborhoods. Each spread is designed to match color palette and mood; each photograph is composed to evoke an emotional response to the individual signs. Sometimes close-up shots are used to show the viewer the rich detail of the tubes or painting behind the sign. At other times the authors captured a sign in a ''film still'' context shot that shows the sign's emotional appeal in a lonely street or neighborhood. Neon is beautiful alchemy: a convergence of glass, gas, and a spark that produces a beckoning light that has enduring appeal. Hardcover, 160 pages
