It explores the contextual occasion of the American Guides and the mechanics of their making.

Their hybrid form - part fiction, part encyclopedia, part travel guide - is interpreted in light of the official American Guide Manual. Contemporary reviews of the guides reveal the extent of enthusiasm over their accomplishment for American culture.

Vintage Snapshots also investigates the American Guide Series troubled relationship with anti-New Deal forces. The politics of national portraiture are placed in the context of previous literary attempts to reproduce the entirety of America in words. A state-by-state compendium records the content of individual guides.
