Bound collection of 51 original photographic prints (sheet size 10 5/8" x 13 5/8"; image sizes approx. 8" x 11"), created by the official photographers to the Exposition, showing compellingly composed and beautifully printed views of the grounds, buildings, and context of the World's Fair that celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of Chicago and which was critical in disseminating an Art Deco aesthetic to a wide American public, each photograph hand-captioned in pencil under the image. Folio. Bound in full blue tooled leather, sleekly decorated with gilt details. Chicago (Kaufmann- Fabry) n.d. (ca. 1934). A spectacular work, done in a very limited but unspecified edition, presented to a small number of cultural, political, and business leaders involved with the groundbreaking Exposition. There are numerous aerial views of the fairgrounds and of individual buildings, several night views showing dramatic lighting effects, many views of international and domestic pavilions, interior scenes showing streamlined architecture and decoration; many of the images emphasize the Art Deco influence prevalent throughout the fair.
