Step Right Up! Classic American Target and Arcade Forms

This book contains a representative sampling of approximately 230 color images of some of the most beguiling and graphically compelling images known. The book is divided into eight chapters with the first five chapters devoted to the major American manufacturers (Mangels, Parker, Wurfflein, Dickman and the four Chicago manufacturers, Evans, Hoffmann, Mueller and Smith).  The remaining three chapters depict selected miscellaneous American and European targets, as well as arcade objects commonly seen in arcades at amusement parks and other venues.  A gallery at the end of the book describes the various manufacturers of the objects depicted, as well as dimensions and other pertinent information.
