Chrysler at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

I just finished writing my book on the 1962 Seattle World's Fair and thought it was time to look at pictures of something else for a while. Let's start with a view of this signpost from the Chrysler pavilion at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. Chrysler wasn't one of my favorite shows, paling in comparison to the Ford and General Motors shows, but visually it was a real treat. The signage was really well done - lots of fun shapes and colors.

I haven't had much in the way of spare time lately as I have been busy working on my next book. This one is on Century 21, the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. The publisher just sent me the mockup for the cover, which is pictured here. The race is on to put the pages inside of it together! I'm having fun taking a look at my pictures from Seattle once again as I compile the book, so it's a fun project indeed.

I hope you like the cover and will like the book. It will be out later this year. And yes, there's a typo or two in this mockup but they've already been fixed in the real version!
