19 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the beginning of the automobile age, in that most car crazy of places, Southern California, roadways were dotted with eye-catching beacons for travelers. Diners shaped like chili bowls, pigs, and coffee pots; hotels and theaters in Aztec and Mayan motifs; and all manner of oddly shaped buildings were part of the Western architectural landscape - a trend that spread across the country. California Crazy & Beyond: Roadside Venacular Architecture is the most thorough documentation of this ususual architectural style, and a greatly enhanced, fully revised version of the classic book that first explored the movement."--BOOK JACKET

20th century fashion : 100 years of apparel ads by Alison A Nieder( Book )

18 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book chronicles the story of modern fashion from couture to mass market. The 20th century saw fashion evolve from an exclusive Parisian salon business catering to a wealthy elite, into a global industry employing millions, with new trends whisked into stores before the last model has left the catwalk. Along the way, the signature feminine silhouettes of each era evolved beyond recognition: House of Worth crinolines gave way to Vionnet's bias-cut gowns, Dior's New Look to Quant's Chelsea Look, Halston's white suit to Frankie B.'s low-rise jeans. In menswear, ready-made suits signaled the demise of bespoke tailoring, long before Hawaiian shirts, skinny ties or baggy pants entered the fore. This book offers a stylish retrospective of the last hundred years, via 400 fashion advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection. Using imagery culled from a century of advertising, this book documents the unrelenting pace of fashion as it was adopted into the mass culture, decade by decade. An in-depth introduction, chapter text, and illustrated timeline detail the style-makers and trend-setters, from couture to the mass market; and how the historic events, design houses, retailers, films, magazines, and celebrities shaped the way we dressed then and now

Car hops and curb service : a history of American drive-in restaurants, 1920-1960 by Jim Heimann( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the early 1920s to the late 1950s, the American drive-in restaurant was the social arena for the young and old alike. Swinging ponytails, shiny new automobiles, and the aroma of French fries drifting through unrolled car windows heralded a new freedom for American consumers. Since the original Texas Pig Stand of 1921, the drive-in has become an all-American icon. A fascinating cultural and historical commentary on the first half of the twentieth century, Car Hops and Curb Service documents the drive-in's unique architectural contribution to the American landscape - and serves up a delicious look back at a vital period filled with verve and style."--Jacket

Shop America : midcentury storefront design, 1938-1950 by Steven Heller( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In postwar America, everything pointed to a bright, shiny future. Sheer optimism and opulence informed everything from automobile design to architecture, infusing design with larger-than-life planes and curves. Storefront design of the era is particularly indicative of this phenomenon, incarnated here in an extensive collection of hand-illustrated shop window designs from 1938 to 1950. These spectacular, often grandiose plans for grocery stores, shoe shops, beauty salons, bakeries, and more are reminders of a time when stores were sacred shrines for the congregation of American shoppers - impressive and even slightly intimidating, just like the future itself. Collected for this unique book, the designs viewed in retrospect reveal the mindset of a unique period in history. In addition to an extensive selection of drawings are historical black and white photographs of actual shops built in a similar style. "Shop America" offers a rare look at mid-century commercial America as it pictured itself
Roadside America : architectural relics from a vanishing past = Architektonische Relikte einer vergangenen Epoche = reliques architecturales d'une époque disparque by John Margolies( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the advent of corporate communications and architectural uniformity, America's built environment was a free-form landscape of individual expression. Signs, artifacts, and even buildings ranged from playful to eccentric, from deliciously cartoonish to quasipsychedelic. PhotographerJohn Margolies spent over three decades and drove more than 100,000 miles documenting these fascinating and endearingly artisanal examples of roadside advertising and fantasy structures, a fast-fading aspect of Americana. This book brings together approximately 400 color photographs of main street signs, movie theaters, gas stations, fast food restaurants, motels, roadside attractions, miniature golf courses, dinosaurs, giant figures and animals, and fantasy coastal resorts. In an age when online shopping and mega-malls have reconfigured American consumerism, stripping away idiosyncracy in favor of a bland homogeneity, Margolies's elegiac 30-year survey reminds us of a more innocent, unpredictable and colorful past.--From publisher description
Mid-century ads : advertising from the Mad Men era by Steven Heller( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gleaned from thousands of images, this companion set of books offers the best of American print advertising in the age of the 'Big Idea.' At the height of American consumerism magazines were flooded with clever campaigns selling everything from girdles to guns. These optimistic indicators paint a fascinating picture of the colorful capitalism that dominated the spirit of the 1950s and 60s, as concerns about the Cold War gave way to the carefree booze-and-cigarettes Mad Men era. Also included is a wide range of significant advertising campaigns from both eras, giving insight into the zeitgeist of the period. Bursting with fresh, crisp colors, these ads have been digitally mastered to look as bright and new as the day they first hit newsstands."--Publisher's website
