In 1972 Don Marcks published the first issue of THE CIRCUS REPORT. The front page storyfeatured the Rudy Bros. Circus. Don's idea was to carry news about current shows, routes, items about show people, something for the collector, historical material and a variety of general interest features.
Don was the founder, editor, typesetter, production staff and mail room supervisor, a real one-man band. His life-long passion was the world of circus and THE CIRCUS REPORT reflected this. Don published the magazine for over 30 years until his death in 2003.
After his passing, his wife Martha handed over the reins to Bill Biggerstaff, owner of Graphics 2000, in May of 2003. Bill has carried on the legacy with the same love and passion for the circus industry as Don's.
After retiring in in 2005 from Graphics 2000, Bill has devoted full time to the publication, adding personal touches with his artistic flare and great collection of photos. THE CIRCUS REPORT'S many writers' contributions make the newsletter unique, timely and of interest to a wide variety of readers.
The publication is mailed world-wide and subscribers include circus owners, performers, fans and retired circus personnel that use THE CIRCUS REPORT to find out what is happening in the buisnss today, yesterday and tomorrow. THE CIRCUS REPORT is published twice a month, January through December and continues to be the single most important publication for the working circus, featuring current news, routes, book reviews and even nostalgic pictures in the centerfold.
