Corn Palaces and Butter Queens
Book Description:

Between 1870 and 1930, from state fairs to the world’s fairs, large exhibition buildings were covered with grains, fruits, and vegetables to declare the United States’ rich agricultural abundance. From Teddy Roosevelt’s head sculpted from butter to the Liberty Bell replicated in oranges, Corn Palaces and Butter Queens is a history of one of America’s most beguiling Midwestern art forms.
