Looking for Inspiration: Carnival Ads
0

Hey everyone, I'm working on a summer convention project as a volunteer. I'm looking for old Carnival/Sideshow Advertisements. Anyone have good places to look? I'm looking locally and browsing the internet. Help me out if you can.

One site I think you'll find quite inspiring can be found at: http://www.circusmuseum.nl

You can also Google "Snap Wyatt" and get a great overview of his work and that of other sideshow banner artists.
