This unique collection spotlights well over 200 actual tattoos, popular during the first half of the twentieth century. Here are pierced hearts, shamrocks, pretty girls, skulls and crossbones, exotic ladies, crossed swords, colourful birds, cherubs, Indian chiefs, pirates, butterflies, and a host of other striking figures. Commercial artists and designers will welcome this spectacular book and CD-ROM set. Collagists, decoupeurs, and other craftworkers will find the material a great source of inspiration.
