This 3-signature pamphlet style artist’s book tells the story of the Victorian amusement park built in the town where the artist grew up. Filled with gathered personal memories of the park from its heyday, it also includes Davis’s experiences of photographing the park in its abandoned state. Over 20 original photographs shot in 1979 depict the park as it appeared months before demolition. Eight full-color reproductions of historic postcards are also included.

The 6 1/4” x 6 1/2” book was printed offset lithography at the Borowsky Center for Publication Arts at The University of the Arts.
