Fraser includes 166 choice illustrations in this oblong volume, representing graphic design trends, prominent artists, and classic ads. Though he considers how changing social concerns (war propaganda, anti-drug) are reflected on billboards, his focus remains on the advertising industry. Indeed, more discussion of the billboard's impact on the environment would have been welcome.

I really like the background/history provided in this book. I am disappointed with the selection of billboards (photos) used. I am not too interested in seeing a print of what was on a billboard....I want to see the actual billboard itself. Page 134 and some others in the section of the 1960s are good photos of actual billboards as they stood....that's what I'm talking about! I love photos in any book about American pop culture, it helps me transport myself to that time and I can imagine the experience better.

Good book but mostly advertising content I was looking for more historical book showing the sign structures evolution through the years

Its been out for some years now but I doubt there is a better visual history of the Fraser's billboard book, though having said that I did find that some of the reproduction of posters from decades ago was rather soft. Nicely the material is either presented as photos of billboards or just the poster. Some of the latter are big enough on the page (and pre-used copies of the book are cheap enough) to cut out and frame to make your own product placement wall.

The years up to the forties are rather sparsely covered, understandable as there really wasn't an efficient way of historically capturing billboards in the environment but from then the selection is rather good I thought, all the favorites are here: cola drinks; food; cars; fuel; airlines; politics and some lovely public service ones. A Smokey the Bear poster has the remains of a fire showing the actual billboard construction, the poster having been burned away.

As I've mentioned you can pick up copies quite cheaply on the net but remember that the hardback edition is fourteen by ten inches and the paperback eleven by eight. Either edition is worth searching out.
