Photographs from the Collection of the Los Angeles Public Library

Essay by J. Eric Lynxwiler, Edited by Christina Rice

Paperback | 212 pages

Neon isn’t native to Los Angeles, but it’s difficult to picture the city without it. Every aspect of our lives has been spelled out in neon tubes across the United States, but Los Angeles is the king of that advertising glow. No other landscape could match its sheer quantity of signs in this city that grew up with the automobile. This latest exhibit from Photo Friends and the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection celebrates the city’s long and bright history with this unique type of illumination. Here is Los Angeles, City of Neon.
