Publisher's Description

Dancer Press announces a new edition of Friday Night in the Coliseum, Geoff Winningham’s classic photo-documentary study of professional wrestling, expanded from 144 to 180 pages,

National attention and critical acclaim came almost immediately upon publication. The April 7, 1972 issue of Life magazine carried three full pages of photographs from the book and announced “The Rousin’ Rebirth of ‘Rasslin”. The New York Times, the Village Voice, the Boston Globe, and Newsweek all followed with glowing reviews of the book. By the end of 1972, the book had sold out, and in 1973 the American Federation of Arts published Masters of the Camera, a collection of the most important American photographs of the 20th century, concluding with six of Winningham’s photographs from Friday Night in the Coliseum.
