One-of-a-kind binding of 1939: The Lost World of the Fair from the 2010–2011 Exhibition of the Midwest Bookbinders Association.
Artist statement by Scott Kellar from the exhibition: "David Gerlenter is a favorite non-fiction writer of mine. Although he was victimized by the "Unabomber," he overcame physical problems to continue writing excellent books. This book is a fascinating humanized look at American culture in 1939, through the lens of the 1939 New York World’s Fair. It was the height of the American art deco period that exhibited a wedding of art and technology never since equaled. The creative energies fired with national hope and enthusiasm gave birth to a remarkable World’ Fair which he describes against a back drop of New York City and variety of actual people. I’ve emulated the style and boldness of the period, including the amazing Trylon and Perisphere, in my design."
