About the book:

A motel, a camera and Lucy Fur. Dreamy.Jimmy McDonough, author of Shakey: Neil Youngs 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 environ-ments 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 photo-graphs are in some way a reaction to the established lexicon of pin-up sexy.

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