Freaks, Geeks & Strange Girls

I have just finished cataloging images from Freaks, Geeks, & Strange Girls. This title was a treasure trove of hand painted circus sideshow banners, it also included a few rare images of some of the performers these banners advertised. I happened upon this book during our quarterly shelf-reading project. Having been a roust-a-bout in the Big Apple Circus at one time, I find these images exciting. They would be of use to any patron who needs to delve into early graphic design and advertising.
