For a century, it has stood as the blazing Crossroads of the World- the sometimes magical, sometimes tawdry, but always spectacular epicenter of American commercial culture.Times Square Style is a visual compendium of the energy and dazzle and glamour that made the Great White Way the most famous -- and notorious -- place in Americas most famous -- and notorious -- city.

From Ziegfelds Follies and George Whites Scandals to titanic signs with screaming type -- Drink Pepsi! Smoke Camels! Good to the Last Drop! -- to burlesques with dancing girls in short, short skirts, this book brings to colorful life a trove of arcane, lost, and otherwise forgotten promotions, signs, flyers, programs, posters, records, napkins, advertisements, billboards, and other works of ephemera large and small.Times Square Style is published on the centennial anniversary of this defining American place, with more than 200 color images and 25 vintage black-and-white prints.
