Baeder, an artist and author of Diners, here chronicles America's prewar highway culture with reproductions of postcards, many of which are photocards and linen cards. He also tells stories about the often-garish pictures and includes photos of some of the motels, cottages and road stops as they appear today. PW enjoyed this ``visual fantasy life.'' (March)
