Description: Tony and Eva Worobiec once again take to the road to create a beautiful photographic essay about an America that's fast fading away. Often when we think of the United States, we remember the things that once set it apart visually: the flamboyant oversized cars, ubiquitous diners, bright neon lighting, large city hotels that figured so prominently in Hopper paintings, and the once-uniquely American motel. Sadly, these are now in steady decline. In this collection of outstanding images, the Worobiecs capture the magic that remains, on journeys ranging from the far north - the High Line at the Canadian border - across the high plains to the desert towns of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The casinos, remnants of movie palaces, burger shacks, and roadside sculptures all evoke a once-glorious past.

This hardcover book measures 11 inches by 9½ inches. Published May 6, 2008.
