Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia

Bizarre doesn't even begin to cover the strange subculture you'll discover in the pages of the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia ($22). Written by former prisoner and prison attendant Danzig Baldaev, it examines the underground language of tattooing used by the criminal class of Russia using hand-drawn notes, written explanations, and photos by Sergei Vasiliev. It's sure to become a staple of your coffee table collection — and the same could be said for Volumes II and III. [Scouted by Richard]
