Royal Art Books along with the Ohio Tattoo Museum and Rich T. are proud to announce the release of “COVETED: The Del Cook Collection” available now for pre-order!

Del Cook’s story is an interesting one: a tattoo fan and tattoo history collector when most of the history we look back on was still happening. This collection contains iconic flash, hundreds of designs, historical photos, and works from legendary names such as Coleman, Waters, Wagner, Jensen, Skuse, Mingins, Hartley, and Wicks. Included in this collection is information about Del Cook and his friendship with tattooists Al and Dale Shiefley, Huck Spaulding, and Les Skuse as well as never before seen photos of what was most likely the first “tattoo convention”: The Sandusky Tattoo Club.
