n.p. N.P. 1929. This very colourful souvenir album for the Sevilla 1929/30 Ibero-Americana exhibition features full page artistically rendered views (by "Povo") of the structures and settings of the grounds, created through the collaboration of the French landscape architect J.C.N. Forestier and the Spanish architect Anibal Gonzalez. Forestier had begun work on the site as early as 1911 with his re-design of the Parque Maria Luisa, the former palace garden along the Guadalquivar and he transformed it into a public park and site for the Exposition.
