Vegas Gold

Vegas Gold: The Entertainment Capitol of the World 1950–1980, by David Wills, is a stunning visual survey of Las Vegas during its golden age—from 1950s Americana to the 1960s Rat Pack era to the decadence of lavish 1970s era stage productions. Performers, impresarios, celebrities, and showgirls abound. Stephen Schmidt of Duuplex provided Vegas Gold with a glamorous art direction and design, featuring an ultra glossy French fold jacket, gold sparkle foil typography, gilded gold book block, and gold ink throughout. Vegas Gold garnered First Place Photography Book in the 2018 New York Book Show, and was featured in the Los Angeles Times’ Most Beautiful Coffee Table Books of 2017.
