We all carry around pictures of Lincolnon our pennies and five-dollar bills. These are among countless images created by engravers and other artists who copied, by hand, portraits that Lincoln posed for in a photographer’s studio. This engaging and attractive book depicts the five most famous Lincoln photographs and their numerous reproductions, which appeared, often dramatically and even comically altered, everywhere from newspapers and magazines to flyers, postcards, and campaign buttons. George Sullivan tells the fascinating story behind each image, providing insight about the early photographic process as well as a unique perspective on the political career of our sixteenth president. Bibliography, index.
