In this PLACE SPACE issue, visionary designer Todd Oldham focuses his incredible eye on the animated oasis of 'The Flintstone's' BEDROCK CITY. Situated somewhere in Arizona between lusty Las Vegas and the glorious Grand Canyon, is a slice of television folklore and American kitsch. Conceived of as a tourist attraction, BEDROCK CITY is a fanatical replication of Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty's hometown. Through Todd’s wonderfully saturated and graphic photographs, BEDROCK CITY comes to life as a surreal PLACE SPACE in the barren landscape.
Beautifully designed, BEDROCK CITY comes wrapped in a custom-designed poster for your home, with additional tear-out postcards, and inspired essays by both Todd Oldham and renowned designer Michael Graves. In his essay, Michael Graves reflects on Oldham’s vivid photographs that capture the spirit, wit, and folly of this unique and wholeheartedly American PLACE SPACE. This book is sure to amuse and delight viewers of all ages.
AMMO’s PLACE SPACE books, by the incomparable Todd Oldham, launch a new design series that celebrates singular places and the uncommonly devoted people who create them.
