Description - An Abraham Lincoln Tribute by Bob Blaisdell

From a humble backwoods cabin to the highest office in the land, this graphic art biography chronicles Abraham Lincoln's path from obscurity to immortality. Its thirty-six striking woodcuts, each accompanied by a brief caption, depict scenes from the life of the sixteenth president. Original and imaginative in their stark beauty, these images offer fresh perspectives on the familiar tale of Lincoln's progress from rail-splitter and self-taught prairie lawyer to his role as the Great Emancipator and preserver of the Union. This new edition of Charles Turzak's remarkable book is presented in commemoration of the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. In addition to a new preface and introduction, it features an appendix with several of Lincoln's famous speeches, letters, and quotations. A keepsake treasure for Civil War buffs and historians, this unique expression of American culture will inspire readers of all ages.
