The Book on Vegas

The Book on Vegas EISNER, Lisa & ALONSO, Román & HICKEY, Dave

In celebration of Las Vegas's centennial, Greybull Press has put together the ultimate visual tribute to sin city. An exceptional collection of images of the city as seen through the eyes of many of the most important photographers, artists and filmmakers of the past 50 years, it also includes classic archival images that capture the true essence of what makes Vegas the high/low pleasure capital of the world: its entertainers and celebrities, its winners and losers, the dealers, divas, players and dreamers. "The Book on Vegas" features landmark images of the desert city's architecture, street life, weddings, casinos and surrounding landscape. Some of the highlights include William Claxton's intimate backstage portraits of Marlene Dietrich, Sammy Davis Jr. and Noel Coward; Elliott Erwitt's iconic image of the lone slot machine player; Helmut Newton's photograph of the secret money room at Caesar's Palace; Bruce Weber's portfolio of Siegfried & Roy at home with their tigers; Grant Mudford's straight architectural photos of Liberace's outlandish estate; Lauren Greenfield and Philip-Lorca diCorcia's intimate portraits of pole dancers; Diane Keaton's mysterious images of hotel lobbies; Garry Winogrand's off-the-strip motel swimming pool; Ed Ruscha's stop-action shots of a typewriter being dropped from the window of a Buick speeding through the nearby desert; Leroy Neiman's painting of Buddy Hackett; stunning film stills from "Casino, Koyaanasquatsi, Godfather II" and other classic films--and much, much more. With over 300 pages, and 226 exquisitely produced color images, "The Book on Vegas" is luminous, loud and spectacular--like the city itself. Includes work by Doug Aitken, Guy Bourdin, Sophie Calle, Robert Crumb, Todd Eberle, William Eggleston, Eliott Erwitt, Larry Fink, Lee Friedlander, Ron Galella, Lauren Gr
