This is the catalog of an exhibition in Spain, in 2009, of the circus posters of the collection Fernàndez-Ardavin, a company that has been printing posters for circus for about 100 years. They were those printing the posters for the Circus the Parish. The catalog contains a history of the circus and of the performers, and it is illustrated by many posters and photos: Fernàndez had at some stage 10,000 photos of circus and vaudeville performers in his collection.
There are some never-seen-before posters of Magicians, especially those of Majeroni that were re-printed by the grand-daughter in her book (M-00199), but also one of Richiardi and photos of Balzar and other magicians never seen before.
A great reference book!
