MICHIELS, Toon. American Neon Signs by Day & Night.

(Nuth, Holland): Rosbeek, 1980. First edition. Square octavo. Unpaginated. 58 pages. 14 gatefolds. Illustrated with a total of 30 photographs the volume illuminates neon signs within the American landscape, first in daylight, and then by night. In the daylight version, these signs have a weariness about them, as if they aren’t meant to be seen in sun, like gaudy inanimate vampires. Only at night do their full forms emerge: that confident, dramatic and other-worldly light that only exists when electricity and neon gas meet. This is a very good copy in spiral bound wrappers. Signed by the artist on the copyright page.
