it was amazing
bookshelves: informational

This is an amazing collection of photographed artifacts interwoven in chronological order with concise, but interesting expository narrative. The layout attempts to honor the "old courthouse" style with the book being on legal size paper with thin margins. The font and clip art also emulates the graphics of the Lincoln era. The book is not only provides valuable historical documentation; it is also a work of achival art. Lincoln is always a subject of awe and seems to inspire neverending curiosity. This book delves into every corner of his life and finds the documentation. One would think that the curiosity would be satisfied after reading such voluminous work, but to the contrary, one is motivated to know even more about Old Abe and the southern belle that was Mary.
