des Arts et des Techniques Paris 1937
promotional bookmark published by the French
Government for distribution in the USA
thick card 180 x 46 mm
'In 1937, the Queen City
of Expositions held court
for the last time. World War One was scarcely two
decades past. The most catastrophic war in the
history of the human
race loomed less than two
years away. Paris, France, Europe, and all
of the earth seemed poised in the eye of a hurricane,
the winds of World War I and World War II.
The Exposition Internationale
would be the final
European enactment of the ritual of Peace and
Progress before the deluge.'
from an essay on the
exhibition by Arthur Chandler
