A Social and Pictorial History of the Minnesota State Fair
"Marling's sense of humor and ability to set details in their larger context make her work eminently readable and evocative. The book covers everything from prize animals to fair architecture to speeches to Pronto Pups. The design is inviting, with delightful sidebars in the margins on such topics as 4-H cakes and freak shows. Black-and-white photographs, both historical and contemporary, pack the oversized volume."--Mpls St. Paul Magazine.
