Synopsis:

In 1980, Los Angeles historian Jim Heimann wrote a book about the oddball roadside architecture that has dotted the American landscape since the advent of the auto. Published by Chronicle Books as CALIFORNIA CRAZY, it stayed in print for nearly 20 years. Finally, here is the greatly expanded new edition of that sought after classic. CALIFORNIA CRAZY AND BEYOND is packed with madcap restaurants, motels, service stations, and many other businesses shaped like hot dogs, animals, airplanes, pianos, and other architectural anomalies. Over the years, Heimann's continued research has uncovered a multitude of new pictures and forgotten buildings. With over 380 photographs and an illuminating text that tracks the subject well beyond the bounds of the West Coast, CALIFORNIA CRAZY AND BEYOND is an authoritative document of a style born in America and spread to all corners of the world.
