In the space of a century, Las Vegas went from a dusty frontier town to the booming 24-hour mecca for pleasure-seekers captured in this TASCHEN title. America’s naughtiest town is seen in vintage pictures and ephemera that chronicle all the hot spots from the Sands and the Strip to the Golden Horseshoe and Glitter Gulch, along with a historical overview of the city’s multiple reinventions. From the era of Bugsy Siegel to Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack and Elvis’s triumphant return to the stage, there`s no gambling with this book - it’s a sure jackpot.
  • "Icons: Las Vegas is a case where a picture is truly worth a thousand words. In fact, there are only six and a half pages of text in this 192-page book, a compilation of classic photos and advertisements depicting Las Vegas from the early 1940s to the ‘60s. Flipping through the pages you`ll find historic images of since-imploded resorts like the Landmark, Sands, Dunes, and Hacienda. The introduction is written by the son of the Flamingo`s original owner, and a Las Vegas timeline is printed in English, German, and French."
