Book by Mattie Erik

Reseña del editor:

As showcases of design, architecture, technology, industry and politics, world's fairs have served as overviews of society's accomplishments as well as barometers of the optimism for the future. While many of the products and ideas promoted at past fairs never materialized, many became commonplace: television, for example, was first shown at the 1939 New York fair. Similarly, while many buildings and landscapes built for fairs have become world-wide icons - the Eiffel Tower, the Crystal Palace, the Barcelona Pavilion, the Seattle Space Needle, the Buckminster Fuller Dome in Montreal - hundreds of splendid structures have been forgotten. This text looks back on 150 years of looking forward, presenting a history of all major exhibitions, from the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations in London in 1851 to the upcoming fair in Hanover in 2000. In all, 27 fairs are detailed through their histories, structures and graphics.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
