It covers topics such as Science & Technology, Arts, Architecture, etc. *(Recommended. Although leaning toward the 1964-65 fair, this book does a good job of comparing the two fairs with lots of pictures, behind-the- scenes information, and comments by well-known personalities of the times. Essays discuss various themes, and themes that were never to be. One detriment to readers of this website is that the amusement area is not discussed, save for the odd item like the U.S. Rubber ferris wheel.)
