The Official World's Fair Guidebook New Orleans 84
Année de sortie : 1984
Langue : Anglais
World's Fair publications are difficult projects even under the best of circumstances. The "best" however, are circumstances seldom encountered. Information is in short supply and constantly changing; an international exhibitor has not yet decided whether to use a theatre in the round or a film as a highlight of its pavilion; a corporation has not decided if its exhibit will encompass 500 square feet or 5000; a concessionaire does not yet know the location of his food stand. All of these decisions are yet to be made and the Guidebook must be at the printer to meet production schedules for delivery by the opening day of the Fair.
Added to this is the task of gathering photographs, illustrations and architectural renderings to be used to create a visual image of the site that is still under
construction when the Guidebook is on its way to the printer.
In order to overcome these and the hundreds of other obstacles (major and minor) encountered while producing the World's Fair publications, a herculean effort was extended by a staff who displayed the highest standards of professionalism under the most difficult of circumstances. These people are listed in the masthead but I would like to recognize them again: Linda Delery, Editor; Margaret Boebel, Production Manager; Jean Stastny, Project Director; Steven Singer, Designer and Art Director; Tom Braly, Marketing Director.
This Guide has been planned from its conception to be an easy-to-use and interesting publication as well as a fitting souvenir for this very special event. You will find that it fulfills all these expectations and more.
This venture has been an unforgettable experience for myself and it is my wish that the Official World's Fair Publications will add to the enjoyment of every visitor.
