Synopsis

Synopsis

The American flag has been raised high in wartime triumph and peacetime celebration; sewn lovingly onto quilts, caps, pillows, and bags; appropriated by popular culture; and faithfully honored every Fourth of July. This vibrant collection of 100 Stars and Stripes artifacts ranges from Civil War-era banners and Native American braided moccasins to an early 20th-century "friendship" kimono and original flag art by several of the world's leading designers. Destined to captivate folk-art aficionados, history buffs, and collectors, 100 AMERICAN FLAGS provides a stunning visual history of America's most treasured symbol. A timely, patriotic full-color book presenting 100 American flag artifacts from one of the world's most eminent collectors, designer Kit Hinrichs. Selected images from LONG MAY SHE WAVE in an affordable, collectible edition. Election year and wartime keepsake, displaying nonpartisan national pride.
