Description -

The first book to define the extraordinarily rich history of fairground carving and painted imagery in Britain, America and Europe.  Documenting the history of a unique art form, a lavishly illustrated volume traces the development of amusement park imagery from rustic 19th century fairs, through the Art Deco period of the thirties, to today's high-tech amusement parks and carnivals.

Fairground Art by Geoff Weedon and Richard Ward
