DESCRIPTION

The secret history of mid-century America might've been just another Saturday night after all. Pennies in a Stream haphazardly documents the nation's surreal suburbanesque diversions through an illogical dreamscape of 20th century newspaper advertisements—some might call it accidental backpage genius. Blatant ballyhoo from cocktail lounges, 60s strip clubs, evangelical churches, appliance warehouses, b-movie theaters, and chop suey joints of yore.  It is commercial America at its most sublime, boorish, and cosmically mundane—a verifiable discount rack memento mori. This is the expanded second edition offering even more mesmerising eyebleed action.
