he great Worlds Fairs and Expositions staged around the world since the mid-nineteenth century were among the largest and most dramatic cultural events ever staged. In both beneficial and detrimental ways they affected the lives of tens of millions of people. Fair World tells the story of these extraordinary exhibitions from the Victorian period to present day. Over 40 expositions from around the world are studied in detail in this beautifully illustrated book with previously unseen material, including original photographs and postcards from the earliest fairs.
