American Neon Signs by Day & Night is the work of Photographer and Graphic Designer Toon Michiels. The book was originally released in 1979 as an edition of 1000 in collaboration with the celebrated printing house Drukkerij Rosbeek and has since become extremely rare and hard to find.
During the late Seventies Toon traveled the length and breadth of America photographing neon signs, each sign captured during the day and again at night from an identical position. The result is a striking visual compendium that provides great insight into the graphical landscape of the USA at that time.
This newly compiled digital edition of American Neon features a foreword by renowned photography collector, publisher and creative director Erik Kessels and also includes many images that were omitted from the original publication.
