2 Captain Don Leslie: Sword Swallower Circus Shideshow Attraction

Chinchilla, Madame Trade Paperback



The amazing, unvarnished story of one of the greatest, most versatile sideshow performers of them all, the Tattooed King of the Midway -- the incredible, legendary Capt. Don Leslie, as told from his personal interviews, illustrated with colorful photographs from his circus trunks. As a young boy, Capt. Don Leslie followed his dream and ran away from home to join the circus. He lived, worked and traveled with the circus sideshow for 55 years. The last of his kind, literally: the last man that bridges the gap in history between the sideshow swordswallower and the modern day tattooer. This is his story. In my lifetime I touched three centuries of the circus. When I was nineteen, people in their fifties were from the 1890's. I met entertainers who worked for P.T. Barnum. Captain Don always knew he was home when he smelled elephant sh**. - Henry Goldfield Goldfield's Tattoo, San Francisco

14 Vintage Tattoos: The Book of Old-School Skin Art

Clerk, Carol Paperback

Brand New 

Tattoos have gone from badges of rebellion to fashion statements fully absorbed into mainstream culture. They are enjoying a renaissance, with graphic designers and artists creating specialty tattoos for a growing audience, unleashing a revival of interest in the bawdy vintage tattoo. Old school tattoos are being rediscovered (sometimes ironically, sometimes not) by a new generation. Originally embraced by rebels, sailors, and gangsters, these tattoos -- broken hearts, naked girls, floral motifs, and maritime emblems -- are now showing up on the fashion runway and in music videos. This book chronicles vintage motifs in thematic chapters interspersed with profiles of influential tattoo artists and their distinctive designs: Sailor Jerry Collins, Don Ed Hardy (the Godfather of Tattoos), Mike Rollo Banks Malone, Bert Grimm, Japan's Horiyoshi III, and Shanghai?s Pinky Yun. Lots of color art. 
Price: 29.95 USD
