Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Book Description:

The photographs, drawings and texts published in this book are part of a collection of more than 3,000 tattoos accumulated over a lifetime by a prison attendant named Danzig Baldaev. Tattoos were his gateway into a secret world in which he acted as ethnographer, recording the rituals of a closed society. The icons and tribal languages he documented are artful, distasteful, sexually explicit and sometimes just strange, reflecting as they do the lives and traditions of Russian convicts. Skulls, swastikas, harems of naked women, a smiling Al Capone, medieval knights in armor, daggers sheathed in blood, benign images of Christ, sweet-faced mothers and their babies, armies of tanks and a horned Lenin: these are the signs by which the people of this hidden world mark and identify themselves. With a foreword by Danzig Baldaev, and an introduction by Alexei Plutser-Sarno, exploring the symbolism of the Russian criminal tattoo.

Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Book Description:

Les photographies, les dessins et les textes publiés dans cet ouvrage font partie d'une collection de plus de trois mille tatouages recueillis patiemment par Danzig Baldaev, alors qu'il était surveillant de prison. Ces tatouages sont la portée vers un monde secret - une société très fermée dans laquelle Danzig Baldaev a joué un rôle d'ethnographe. les langages iconiques et tribaux qu'il nous donne à voir sont artistiques, repoussants, sexuellement explicites, parfois tout simplement étranges, mais ils reflètent dans tous les cas la vie et les rituels des détenus. Des crânes, des svastikas, des harems de femmes nues, des chevaliers médiévaux en armures, des poignards dégoulinants de sang, des images pieuses du Christ, des armées de chars d'assaut, et un Lénine cornu - autant de symboles par lesquels les êtres de ce monde secret se marquent et s'identifient.

Book Description:

This book reveals the importance of playing cards in Russian criminal culture. The handmade decks are beautiful works of art in their own right. Prohibited by the prison authorities, they are constructed from innocuous materials procured from the everyday routine of prison life. During construction both the cards and their designs are adroitly manipulated so they can be read. Once they are completed, the virtuoso player prowls the prison, searching for a suitable victim. This process is described here for the first time. Extensive diagrams show how the cards are made, while decks of actual prison cards are reproduced in facsimile.
