The tear off desk calendar is a beautiful creation in a plastic pad to last all year. There are 640 pages that will peel off every day for your scheduling and viewing pleasure with color circus pictures from the Taschen Book.
The third calendar is a wire “O” ring bound date book with 124 pages in it. There are plenty of Circus photos of Circus Performers, wagons, tents, and other circus themes.
The incredible oversized book is 670 pages long with 200 Lithographed images from the Strobridge Litho Co. in Cincinnati, Ohio. Artists, Collectors, and Circus Historians considered them to be the finest creator of Circus Posters and Lithographs in the United States. There are black and white photos, engravings, and about 180 of the very first color photos taken of the circus from the 1940’s.
The book is so fascinating in the never before seen photos that people are saying the circus photos are worth the price of the book by themselves. “It’s a joy for any Circus Lover to own.” The L.A. Times said “The Circus 1870 – 1950 is an under the Big Top survey of one of America’s least examined chapters of Cultural history.”
