Text engl. - „This witty, wacky and wondrous collection of found vintage family and travel Kodachrome slides celebrates the cultural extravaganza that is America’s golden era, the space age. As the New York Times put it, Charles Phoenix ,joyfully mines America's past through its fashion and design. Mr. Phoenix taps into what he calls Americans' 'collective memory.’ Readers experience both kitschy and classic places where often only a picture can tell the whole story. With his laugh-out-loud-funny text and colorful images, Phoenix proves that Americana can definitely be coffee-table worthy.“ (Publisher’s text, - Nur Kurztitelaufnahme 04.2008.
