Lady Liberty : A Biography
by Doreen Rappaport and Matt Tavares




Overview -
"Tributes to the Statue of Liberty abound, but this one stands out for its unusual approach and powerful illustrations."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

It begins in 1865 as a romantic idea, but ten years later douard Laboulaye's dream catches fire. Sculptor Auguste Bartholdi gives the dream the form of a lady, holding a torch to "enlighten the world." Engineers, plasterers, carpenters, and coppersmiths work together to turn the lady into a monument more than 100 feet tall. Doreen Rappaport's poetic vignettes and Matt Tavares's magnificent images remind us of the origins of a national symbol--and show that it took a lot of people to make the Lady.
