This book is a colorful history of the carnival sideshow and its distinctive banner art. With 100 color photographs, the book lovingly surveys this now vanished icon of early rural America, counter pointing classic freak show art with contemporary interpretations. 50 archival black-and-white photos of sideshows provide a historical context for the banner illustrations.
