Room With a View
by Lucy Fur
Publisher's Description
“A motel, a camera and Lucy Fur. Dreamy.”—Jimmy McDonough, author of Shakey: Neil Young’s Biography and Big Bosoms and Square Jaws: The Biography of Russ Meyer

The young, buxom “Burlesque Queen” of Portland, Oregon, has begun a distinctive photographic career by posing in a vanishing breed of unique motel room environments across the country.

Writes Lucy in her introduction, “Room With a View is not merely a pin-up book: it is as much about the room as it is about me. I think of myself as a fixture in that room, like a lamp or a chair. The kind of motel rooms that particularly attracted me had wood paneling, forgotten ‘60s- and ‘70s-era oil paintings, strange lighting, fantasy themes, tiled bathrooms, wacky wallpaper, and no outside view. All the photographs are in some way a reaction to the established lexicon of ‘pin-up sexy.’”

Room With a View contains nearly one hundred of Lucy Fur’s photographs, bound handsomely with an inlaid photograph surrounded by an elegant embossed cloth binding.
