Pennies in a Stream haphazardly documents America's surreal suburbanesque diversions through an illogical dreamscape of 20th century newspaper advertisements—some might call it accidental backpage genius. Blatant ballyhoo from cocktail lounges, 60s strip clubs, evangelical churches, appliance warehouses, b-movie theaters, and chop suey joints of yore. It is commercial America at its most sublime, boorish, and cosmically mundane—a verifiable discount rack memento mori. This is the expanded second edition offering even more mesmerising eyebleed action.

Second Edition. Edited and with a preface by Michael P. Daley. "An open invitation" by Edward Lasala.
