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.
From the Library of Congress:
And a gem I dug up from the LOC a few years ago: Performing Monkeys
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.
This book has a ton of them
I have an old freakshow poster myself.
Flickr has a crazy amount of pools full of carnival posters.
This site for posters of magicianhttp://facweb.furman.edu/~rbryson/impimages.html
