About the author (1986)

Los Angeles-based, Grammy award-winning art director H. Thomas Steele is the author and designer of the best-selling popular culture graphics books: The Hawaiian Shirt, Bowl-O-Rama, Close Cover Before Striking, and Lick'em, Stick'em. He has had a life-long interest in clowns, and considers them to be a lost art from a more naive time of the last century. If he has anything in common with clowns it may be that he likes to put a smile on people's faces and he has been known to deliver a mean cream pie.
