Neon Nevada: Sheila Swan and Peter Laufer on the Expanded Edition

Join Sheila Swan and Peter Laufer, authors of Neon Nevada, for a discussion surrounding the influence of neon signage on the development of Nevada’s unique culture. Stay for a book signing of their expanded edition after the talk.

About Neon Nevada:

First published in 1994, Sheila Swan and Peter Laufer take readers on a journey across the state of Nevada on a quest to discover and illuminate Nevada’s neon. Full-color photographs and historical commentary bring the state’s hues of neon to life through the year 2022 in the newly updated and expanded edition of Neon Nevada.

Praise for Neon Nevada:

“This is not merely a coffee table book; it’s an immersive journey through time, a celebration of art, culture, and nostalgia.” —Nick Vedros, president, the LUMI Neon Museum

“The book is a testament to the largely unknown sign designers and tube benders who have made and continue to make Nevada’s magnificent commercial landscape all aglitter!” — Alan Goldman, Blue Plate Productions, producer of the documentary film “Glowing in the Dark”
