New book from Ron Severini

( I received this from Ron Severini today. )


The GREATEST American Circus Clown

AN “OTTO” BIOGRAPHY in Photographs!!!

It is with great pride and excitement that I make the following announcement!

Authorization has been granted by the family of the great American circus clown, OTTO GRIEBLING, to allow me to design and publish a new book, celebrating his life in photographs. Items within the book are taken from Otto’s own personal and private lifetime scrapbooks.

The book is complete!

It is 100-pages, extra-large, 13” X 10”, hard bound, and includes over 200+ hand-selected professional and private photographs, spanning Otto’s circus clown career. Also, included within it’s covers are copies of news clippings, paintings, sketches, autographed photos, personal letters, private documents, celebrity photos and rare old clown alley back lot group photos taken at Cole Bros Circus as well as Ringling Bros Circus. A personal introduction was written by Murray Horwitz; artwork is included by Jim Howle; sketch by Bill Ballantine; a personal note by Steve Smith, as well as recently obtained photos of Otto’s last days of performance in Madison Sq Garden.

The FIRST EDITION is printed in a very limited quantity (100 Copies) and only in a HARD BOUND design. Each FIRST EDITION is signed and numbered. ( Only 32 are left )

"If you find yourself able to make people laugh, it is God's gift. You must do everything from the bottom of your heart!" … Otto Griebling
