The tradition of the fair is living and dynamic and reflects the influence of the popular culture in which it operates. Pleasurelands celebrates the essential ingredients that have enabled the travelling fairground industry to survive for the past eight hundred years. It shows a tradition still very much alive.

Pleasurelands comprises four extensive essays by Dr. Vanessa Toulmin, (Director of the National Fairground Archive, University of Sheffield): Spectacle, Experience, Illusion, and Reality. With 100 black and white photographs, and a 16-page colour section. 

Condition: Very good. (Click on cover image to see close-up of condition.)
