Dear Mr. Ripley: A Compendium of Curioddities from the Believe It or Not! Archives
by Mark Sloan
Publisher's Description
This incredible selection of photographs, on which Ripley partly based his Believe It or Not cartoons, were sent by people as proof of their apparently amazing feats. "The book begins with a brief biography of Robert Ripley, the quintessential American adventurer/artist, then enters a gallery of oddities from the Ripley's archives. Chapters such as "Nature's Whims" and "Tattoo Talent" offer sights that defy explanation--a man with three legs and a woman blowtorching her tongue, for example."--the publisher. Anyone fascinated with the unusual will enjoy "these often startling, always bizarre testimonies to the truly unbelievable."--the publisher.
