The imaginative, often bizarre decorations that enliven fairgrounds, amusement parks, and carousels have a never-ending appeal to the popular imagination: stunning carved and painter horses, sinister mechanical targets, terrifying rides and alluring freak show banners are among the many wildly ornamented devices employing sex, horror, and humor to entice fairground goers. This lavishly illustrated volume features over 1,100 images - more than 700 in full color.
