Synopsis: Step into the world of carnival freaks ...and meet a man who lived and loved it. Leonard "Stoney" St Clair, associated himself with various side-show acts, and bestowed his talents on any willing flesh. Alan Govenar retells Stoney's story as it was told to him, accompanying his text with more than 150 amazing photographs of Stoney's flash and his subjects . This fascinating book delves into this subject more than any other of its kind, with only the fictional tale The Elephant Man coming close in comparison. For designers, flash fans, tattoo artists, and even carnival enthusiasts alike, this classic book has been brought back in print to delight and inspire a whole new generation.
