Outer folder: 37 by 28.5 cm. Unpaginated, sixteen leaves, with a folding plate. The primary large brochure is quite lavish, with many color and two tone illustrations, dramatic photographs, arresting graphics and laden with a high Art Deco sensibility. The purpose of this brochure was in essence to sell the fair to its potential sponsors, underwriters, and exhibitors and as P.R., create excitement in the press. And so it did, with architecture renderings that brings to mind the bold designs of Josef Urban or even of Oz, as in the movie released in 1939. Among the other parts, a handsome proof or mock-up of a "Certificate of Participation", containing original pen and ink and watercolor work; a letter from John D. Webber to Thomas Gunn, head of the Oregon World's Fair Committee, in which Webber expresses his bullishness about the state and the purpose of participating in the fairs; a large blueprint of the Hall of Western States; several large photos and illustrations of the Treasure Island fair and its pavilion(s); miscellaneous blank stationary; and lists of Oregon clus and organizations. Light wear, but everything is otherwise in very good to fine condition.
