The Circus Comes to Town

While I was out Christmas shopping last month, The Circus, 1870- 1950 by TASCHEN Books kept capturing my attention. Something about the book called to me, beckoning me to explore the swirl of color and movement depicted on its pages.


Every time I saw The Circus, I would heed its siren call, flipping through the vintage illustrations and photographs, but never lingering for long.


I would still love a good long sit with this book and the chance to learn all the history and magic that's buried within its spine!

Yes, this is what led to my animal cracker craving! Tell me, do any of you have this book? Is it as incredible as it seems? Stay tuned for more circus things to come!

I have seen it once in the Taschen shop in London - it does look amazing and as I am fascinated by the circus - very tempting. The book is enormous and would warrant it's own reading table but like all Taschen publications it is gorgeous and I would love to have one, xv.
