Las Vegas: Underfoot
Gordon Meyer & Gale Meyer

Down Under – Gordon and Gale Meyer use fewer than two dozen words to preface their delightful picture book. “‘Look! Up! Here!’ Las Vegas screams for you to look everywhere but down. What’s underfoot is no less spectacular; it’s just rarely noticed.” They then share 85 simple, whimsical photographs – each featuring cameo appearances of the tips of the photo-takers’ shoes – of the floors, carpets and sidewalks of Sin City. The result is a magical, fresh and thoroughly charming take on America’s playground in the Mojave Desert.
