Overview

From Alpenbrau to Zima, this engaging book features more than 450 color photos of some of the most attractive beer signs ever created and provides an in-depth look at this significant aspect of advertising art. Included are early wood and cardboard signs, animated, hanging, and wall-mounted signs, electric lanterns, and clocks-all presented in alphabetical order according to brand of beer. Special emphasis is given to electric, lighted, and animated signs from 1950-1970, the "Golden Era" of beer signs. Captions provide valuable information on dates, sizes, values, manufacturers, and manufacturing techniques. A treat for aficionados of breweriana and advertising alike!

This book was like looking at 2 guys personal collection, not the history of signs and breweries. They did not even have the famous Hamms motion signs listed. I should give it a 1 star but the pictures were nice of what they collected. Want to buy a used book?
