A singing mouse, an enormous head, a walking skeleton

Michael Kimmelman at the Times on Ricky Jay's collection of circus broadsides.

(NB--this is the scholar in me--that should be "anti-Jacobite" rather than "anti-Jacobean.")


  1. I did not think it was possible to love Ricky Jay any more than I already did, but this show looks great! Do you remember Mark Singer's New Yorker profile of him several years ago (collected in Character Studies)? It's wonderful.
