The Neon Boneyard

Las Vegas, a town wrapped up in so much Hollywood myth that it can overshadow the real place. On our cinema screens it has been presented to us as ostentatious, splendiferous, and cartoon-like with its bright neon lights and histrionics. And with all things bright and shiny, whether real or cinematic, comes the inevitable fading and burning out. The Neon Museum is the desert mausoleum for the iconic art form of the neon sign that is so synonymous with Las Vegas. When a sign is no longer fit for The Strip it can be gifted or loaned to the museum where it can live out its days in dignity, and age gracefully. The Boneyard is home to some of the most treasured and world-famous signs of Las Vegas – Caesars Palace, Binion's Horseshoe, the Golden Nugget  and the Stardust. These photographs were taken by our graphic designer Carl Martin, during his recent visit to the US. Information on the Neon Museum and its The Boneyard can be found here:
