Circus Museum in the Netherlands is not clowning around. Although its all Dutch to me, this is the most extensive visual archive of circus graphics I’ve ever encountered. It includes posters, banners, flags and press sheets with all the great circus cliches and many more you’ve never seen before (unless you were born on the midway).

Page after web page of thematic vintage work awaits you in this multi-ring virtual tent. See the acrobats, jugglers, magicians, freaks and clowns – see the animals in drag – and learn the folklore of the big top. See it here and visit all the attractions. Come one, come all.
