You may have noticed that some of our books are identified as "deckle edge" in the title. Deckle edge books are bound with pages that are made to resemble handmade paper by applying a frayed texture to the edges. Deckle edge is an ornamental feature designed to set certain titles apart from books with machine-cut pages. See a larger image.
Top Customer Reviews
There are many books available already with images of the face of Lincoln, some with even better paper quality which improves the experience. Others are more comprehensive showing Lincoln in every known photo. The text adds little to this available literature. It would have been much more interesting to learn of how the images survived and were "re-discovered" by scholars scrounging through old archives in many cases. This could have added measurably to what we know of these iconic images and made the photographic short-comings still tolerable.
