A fresh look at Hopper’s iconic vision of the American landscape—its gas stations, diners and highways. Published by Hatje Cantz, Edited with text by Ulf Küster.

Our point of departure for this 20th-century study is therefore not, as one might imagine, the fin-de-siècle ambiance of a Tesco supermarket car park, or the Greenwich peninsula, but Stonehenge.
