This wonderfully unique tome Polish Cold War Neon is an absolute must for mid century design and typography fans.

Photographer Ilona Karwinska has compiled a striking array of images of kitsch neon signage that became commonplace in Polish towns throughout the Cold War. From picture palaces to restaurants and everything in between, this examination into the history of Poland's beautiful lit billboards & slogans is a real feast for the eyes, as well as a fascinating examination into Soviet-influenced design in the 20th century.
