A new photo book out from two guys who know, and care about Route 66!
I have a little different connection with this book than most. I found the photography in this book of Route 66 in Arizona to be so crisp, clear and compelling I just had to use the pictures in my presentation at the 2012 Arizona Governors Conference of Tourism.
Not only did these pictures jump out on the ‘big screens’ when I gave my presentation – they really jump out at you in the book!
I have known Roger Naylor for a little while know – and we talk about our travels and upcoming potential projects on the route. He would tell me what ‘he heard was going on – on Route 66 in Arizona’ and I would share with him my stories and knowledge. The real opportunity to bond with him and Larry Lindahl was when I was approached to do the conference. Roger gave me a preview of his and Larry’s new book and I told him ‘I HAVE to use your images!‘
Then I contacted Larry – who I have NEVER spoken to before. After a few Emails, the deal was set and we were working together. The pictures are FANTASTIC.
Now, to the book! I had to buy this book! It is so clean and flows so well and it is so lively. Larry has taken pictures of all the places we know and love, and the short descriptions ond facts from Roger really compliment the book. It is a must have if you are looking for an addition to your collection!
I will say this – it is not a history book of Route 66 in Arizona, but it is nothing short of a modern day tour guide of Route 66 in Arizona!
While several places are not in the book, I think it balances out quite well, and who knows – maybe a SECOND Arizona Kicks on Route 66 would fill that gap?!?!?
