From the Back Cover
"Thomas Trimborns pictures beautifully reflect many of the moods and character traits that made Abraham Lincoln unique, and that few artists have dared to imagine. He has captured Lincoln moving beyond the constraints of photographic models and uses his own knowledge and appreciation to fill in the blanks." Harold Holzer, Metropolitan Museum of Art
"Thomas J. Trimborns Encounters with Lincoln is not only a work of art that is both sensitive and attractive, but a penetrating description of the man Lincoln. It is an outstanding contribution to the study of Abraham Lincoln and should find its way into every libraryincluding our schools." Frank J. Williams, The Lincoln Forum
