"The Circus, 1870s-1950s"
Here's a fantastic book I've been using for reference in designing the Circus collection for the Showtime Stitches Esty shop. It's full of posters, photographs, lithographs showing the colourful and vibrant world of the circus, all around the world. It's a huge and heavy book full of information, great for anyone interested in vintage posters and photography, the circus, and the history of performance.
