Peace Through Understanding: The 50th Anniversary of the 1964/65 New York World's Fair

Rockville, MD: Erik Delfino, 2015. Number 5 of 10 copies signed by the book artist. A stunning production by book artist and photographer Erik Delfino. In his accompanying pamphlet about the 1964 fair, Delfino writes that his parents took him to the fair when he was four years old. His memories are still vivid and treasured, and he hopes that the photographs of the still remaining structures that he took for this book at the fiftieth anniversary celebration have captured the spirit of the fair. The photographs and text are digitally printed on loose sheets of 19 x 13 inch Epson Exhibition Fiber paper. The twenty-five striking and evocative color photographs are of the structures still remaining at the fair site. They are bold and often abstract and geometric. The photos are interspersed with text offering his brief impressions from viewing the site. The photos are followed by a leaf with pictures of Delfino and his parents on the day they visited the fair. There is a table of contents on the colophon page. The leaves are housed in a taupe cardboard folder that is housed in a blue cloth case, which is encased in a 19.5 x 14 inch stainless steel box with an impression of the iconic stainless steel unisphere. Includes a copy of Cotter and Young’s The 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Unpaginated. ARTISTSBOOK/112916.
