Clowns have their 'faces / make-up' painted on ceramic eggs to provide a record of each of their appearance so that no two clowns look the same.

An odd book - a few of the potted histories were interesting. The 'Clown faces' were in (roughly) equal measure sweet and a bit creepy.

I received a hardcover copy of this book from its publisher through a giveaway they had on LibraryThing and the following is my honest opinion.

We all know that every published book has a copyright which protects it and its author from being illegally copied or produced.

Even though there’s a long-standing tradition of one clown not copying the makeup of another clown, some nefarious individuals have sought to gain financially by using another individual’s clown makeup. But thanks to a registry a

I loved this book way more than I expected. The concept is so strangely wonderful and I was immediately intrigues. The images are very high quality and pleasing to look at. I love to read the little blurb next to each image which is always surprisingly in depth.

This is a beautiful pictorial book of clowns. Each painted eggs are a face of a clown which many give a brief notation or story about them.

Really cool book! I had no idea that clowns were such a big thing, nor did I know that there were more than one kind of clown. It also seems silly now, but I never considered the possibility of female clowns. But this book changed all of that! It was really informative, and interesting to learn the stories of some of these clowns, particularly why some of them wanted to become clowns.
Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.

A cute, quick read; the perfect bathroom/coffee table book. I really wish this was a bigger format.
