Enjoy the best in Americana with this iBook collection of Currier & Ives prints from the 1800s.
In the 1800s, long before the days of photojournalism and television, colorful up-to-date pictures of news events, portraits of important political and social figures, and scenic views of American natural wonders were circulating widely throughout the country. In this era, the famous lithographic firm of Nathaniel Currier and James Merritt Ives produced over 7,000 lithographs picturing scenes of American life, portraits of American leaders, and dramatic re-creations of the events that made the news of the day.
Now in a digital edition, this book features the largest number of Currier & Ives prints ever reproduced in a single volume, as well as many that have never been published. It contains more than three hundred illustrations in full color - perfect for viewing on-screen.
