Dreamland : travels inside the secret world of Roswell and Area 51 by Phil Patton( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a place in the Nevada desert the size of Belgium that doesn't officially exist. It is the airbase where test flights of our top-secret experimental military aircraft are conducted and -- not coincidentally -- where the conspiracy theorists insist the Pentagon is hiding UFOs and aliens. This is Dreamland -- or Area 51. For Phil Patton, the idea of writing a travel account of a place he couldn't actually visit was irresistible. What he found was a world where Chick Yeager and the secret planes of the Cold War converged with the Nevada Test Site and alien landings at Roswell. A think tank for aviation engineering, Dreamland can be seen from a summit outside the base's perimeter, a hundred miles north of Las Vegas

Advertising has always been the dream work of industry, and nowhere is this more evident than in the world of auto advertising. Narrated with introductory and chapter text by New York Times automotive writer Phil Patton, as well as an illustrated timeline and sidebars, this volume highlights the technological innovations, major manufacturers and dealers, influential historical events, and the influence of popular culture on car design. The car is an indicator of more than mere technological innovation; its trends are a reflection of the cultural zeitgeist, whether in the form of a VW Beetle or a road-ready Hummer. The Stone Age, the Bronze Age ours could be called the Automobile Age, and this collection puts you in the drivers seat through the 20th century
Roadside America : architectural relics from a vanishing past = Architektonische Relikte einer vergangenen Epoche = reliques architecturales d'une époque disparque by John Margolies( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the advent of corporate communications and architectural uniformity, America's built environment was a free-form landscape of individual expression. Signs, artifacts, and even buildings ranged from playful to eccentric, from deliciously cartoonish to quasipsychedelic. PhotographerJohn Margolies spent over three decades and drove more than 100,000 miles documenting these fascinating and endearingly artisanal examples of roadside advertising and fantasy structures, a fast-fading aspect of Americana. This book brings together approximately 400 color photographs of main street signs, movie theaters, gas stations, fast food restaurants, motels, roadside attractions, miniature golf courses, dinosaurs, giant figures and animals, and fantasy coastal resorts. In an age when online shopping and mega-malls have reconfigured American consumerism, stripping away idiosyncracy in favor of a bland homogeneity, Margolies's elegiac 30-year survey reminds us of a more innocent, unpredictable and colorful past.--From publisher description

Top this and other parables of design : selected writings by Phil Patton( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2015 the world lost Phil Patton--prolific design writer, teacher and tantalizing wordsmith. Patton's insatiable curiosity, sense of humor and keen eye made for the most compelling reads. Whether he was chronicling design minutia, quirky anecdotes or bizarre tales, Phil's hundreds of books, columns, articles and posts always delivered a new account. As his editor at i-D magazine, Chee Pearlman, said, "His insight takes the reader beyond the object to an understanding of its broadest sociological context." No topic eluded him, and for a large part of his 40-year career he championed automobiles, technology and product design. Roger Black, designer, writer and longtime colleague and friend of Patton's wrote, "He taught The New York Times--by example--to cover design. The domino effect, the rest of the media followed." With an introduction by Edward Tufte and foreword by Caroline Baumann, this volume compiles 40 selections representing the wide range of interests and fascinations that occupied his thoughts. Punctuated by images of ideas and lists from notebooks he carried everywhere, Top This and Other Parables of Design is an intimate and portable companion for those who choose to always have a witty, informed friend around

Twelve years after the first Benz patent motorcar Number 1 made its first journey in July 1886, a car raced across the image in Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's lithograph, 'The Automobilist'. 'La 628-E8', a novel named after the license plate number of its author, Octave Mirbeau, was published in the early twentieth century. In his Futurist manifesto, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti rated the beauty of a racecar's revving engine and speed higher than the aesthetics of the Nike of Samothrace. Ever since its invention, artists have been examining the automobile, and the BMW Art Cars have played a central role here. Alexander Calder's BMW 3.0 CSL from 1975 was the first in a series brought to life by Hervé Poulain, lover of auto racing and works of art, in collaboration with BMW's head of motorsports, Jochen Neerpasch. Seventeen artists have since designed BMW models, and the "rolling sculptures" have not only proved themselves in museums, but also on the race track at Le Mans
