about this book

The Constitution of the United States of America, inscribed and illustrated by the master calligrapher, Sam Fink, brings to life the issues underlying the triumphs of this abiding document. Originally published in pen and ink in 1987, Mr. Fink has gone back to his original black-and-white art and painted it anew, creating a full-color masterpiece. The result is glorious. Each amendment, each article, each word so thoughtfully placed in The Constitution has been given Mr. Fink’s profound touch. With a powerful intelligence and a wonderful sense of humor, he has provided us with an entry point into this complex document, allowing us to read it with greater ease and understanding.

This new trade edition is more portable, with an original new cover, but still every bit as stunning as the original hardcover edition. Sam Fink's incomparable Constitution is for every student and every citizen interested in understanding the words that define our nation.

The Constitution of the United States of America features:
•The entire constitutional document in beautiful calligraphy.
•Interesting facts and side notes about the creation of the document and the people behind the creation of it.
•Over 68 pages of original art.
•Includes Benjamin Franklin's Address to the Delegates upon the Signing.
•Exclusive illustrated chronology and glossary.

“The incredible Constitution of the United States of America, illustrated by Sam Fink, should be in every home in America.” - Ray Bradbury
