Availability: Coming soon
This achingly cool book explores the bold, colourful and enduringly popular tattoo designs that were perfected across two World Wars.
Each chapter focuses on a particular group of tattoos, beginning with the circus displays that kick-started the age of vintage design, through maritime and patriotic emblems, and culminating in the current revival of this genre of art. Unlike other sourcebooks, it includes profiles on the most famous practitioners, as well as interviews with tattooing's living legends.
