This month’s cover image is the front cover of Seattle World’s Fair Preview, a 1961 guide to the Century 21 Exhibition held April 21–October 21, 1962. The image features two iconic symbols of Seattle—the Space Needle and monorail—that attendees of the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting will encounter more than 50 years after their debut at the 1962 World’s Fair.

The guide contains illustrations, photographs, and textual descriptions of Man’s Life in the Space Age, the theme exhibit of the fair held in the Century 21 Coliseum. The image is part of the digital collections at the University of Washington Libraries. More information on the collections is available at http://content.lib.washington.edu.
