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!Merry-go-round
