A critic’s guide to the satellite fairs: it has a pulse
Christian Viveros-Fauné
".... by far the fair’s biggest surprise arrives courtesy of the private Brooklyn

Pulse New York’s Playful Cosmopolitanism
by Allison Meier

Goodreads Voice: Charles A.A. Dellschau
Brightly colored balloons festoon the pages of Charles A.A. Dellschau's ornate manuscripts
—a hefty collection of thousands of drawings and press clippings that herald the advent of 
flight and echo the ingenious imagination of Leonardo da Vinci. The work of this iconoclastic 
Texan, a butcher by trade who started his creative project in his retirement in 1899 and 
continued until his death in 1923, is presented in the new book, Charles A.A. Dellschau.

discovered. They depicted a society, the Sonora Aero Club, that has all but disappeared from 
history, if it was ever there at all.

The remarkable writings of Mark Child 
"Charles Dellschau was an immigrant, a husband, a butcher, a Confederate sympathizer, 
a father, an old man, and remarkably, an artist. One man contained these volumes and

Who are you? What will you leave us this time?"
