All Misemono. Japanese Tent Sideshows. Carnival freaks and acts.
By Carlos Yamazaki
First Edition. 1997. 152 pages, spiral bound hardback, printed in Japan. Over 100 pictures in color and black and white. Book is written in Japanese. Perhaps an app translator can be used on the pages to read. At the very least, you can enjoy the many incredible banners. The book is accompanied by two sheets of postcards of banner paintings, and a paper model of a sideshow tent. Excellent condition.
