Vegas, baby, Vegas

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 new 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.

Jim Heimann is a resident of Los Angeles, a graphic designer, writer, historian, and instructor at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
