FLYING HORSES: THE GOLDEN AGE OF AMERICAN CAROUSEL ART, 1870 - 1930 (The Connecticut Press, 2010. LIMITED EDITION!!!!SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND PHOTOGRAPHER. 200 pages with more than 250+ color and B&W photos -- many never before seen in print.) ISBN: 9780982546826.
Flying Horses: The Golden Age of America Carousel Art, 1870 - 1930 is the first fully annotated American carousel history ever published. It is also the first ever written by a social historian in close cooperation with carousel specialists and one of America's top studio photographers.
This signed and numbered Collector's Edition is destined to become a classic. Arranged chronologically, Flying Horses allows readers to trace the rise of a fledgling art form from the primitive folk pieces of the early 19th century to some of the most intricate and beautifully sculpted pieces of art ever produced... and all over a relatively short period of 60 years and against a varied backdrop as boisterous as Coney Island to pastoral country fairs, where merry-go-rounds were the centerpiece of the country fair.
Flying Horses makes for a wonderful holiday gift that will bring hours of enjoyment to both specialists and general readers alike! But act now, supplies are limited!
