The doors pried open to reveal the stories and inhabitants hidden inside: •encrusted glory •marginal human oddities •forbidden love and fantasy •untold acts of goofy depravity Also for fans of classic American architecture and neon, Motel Bizarre contains dozens of rare images of neon and motels with provocative, imaginative essays and an extensive historical introduction. Desperate realism.
