Spectacle Magazine Goes Digital
Posted February 23, 2012
After fourteen years in print format, Spectacle: A Quarterly Journal of the Circus Arts has gone digital!

The digital version has been renamed Spectacle: An Online Journal of Circus Arts and can be accessed free of charge but still contains all the great content circus artists and professionals have come to rely on over the years.


Ernest Albrecht was the founder of the print version of Spectacle, which he served for all of its fourteen years as editor and publisher. He is also the author of The New American Circus, which was published by the University Press of Florida. It has won world-wide recognition and is considered to be one of the most important books on the American circus published in the past 25 years. His first book, A Ringling By Any Other Name—The Story of John Ringling North and His Circus, published by Scarecrow Press, was hailed as “a major contribution to the scholarship of the modern American circus,” and his latest book, Creating the Contemporary Circus, also published by Scarecrow Press, has been called “a spectacular journey into the processes, aesthetic and commercial, that go into the big ticket big tops of the 21st Century.”
