Synopses & Reviews
Jason DAquino is known for his meticulous, ultra-precise miniature drawings on matchbooks and other kinds of vintage paper. Here he enlists his super-sharp pencil in a slightly larger format: the alphabet book. Based on early 20th-century circus and carnival acts and personalities, these ABCs star an amazing assortment of arcane animals, madcap marvels, and marvelous men and women of the midway. A celebration of all those who venture beyond the mainstream, this exquisitely illustrated book offers a fascinating glimpse into a magical world of fantasy and illusion.
