Overview

Nearly 150 years after his death, Abraham Lincoln consistently ranks at or near the top of every poll of America's best, most admired, or most popular president ever. The U.S. Mint will issue four new Lincoln cent designs in 2009. A yearlong celebration has been organized and supported by the congressionally established Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. In the midst of all the excitement and commemoration debuts Fred Reed's outstanding new work, Abraham Lincoln: The Image of His Greatness. Beautifully illustrated in full color, with hundreds of private and public images, Reed's book explores the popular depiction of Lincoln as "ideal, idol, and icon." The martyred president is seen on coins, tokens, medals, postage stamps, and paper money - and also in oil paintings, magazine covers, popular advertisements, political cartoons, and other diverse media.

    Lincoln's World, Brought to Life!

    An amazingly beautiful coffee table type book, with brilliant, provocative images that truly invoke the world of Abraham Lincoln while presenting an excellent history behind printed images, coins and paper money bearing his picture! This book is packed full of fascinating trivia that not only Lincoln buffs, but everyone, I believe, will really enjoy and learn from. Without exaggeration, this is one of the best and most engaging books that I have ever bought! Please buy a copy; you won't regret it!
