Description
 
The Continental Congress resolved in 1777 that “the flag of the U.S. be 13 stripes, alternate red and white; that the Union be 13 stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation.” Far from being a static symbol, though, the flag has been subjected to countless graphic interpretations over its history, each version owing more to the personality of the maker than to established formal conventions. And nowhere are these continual changes better viewed than in the collection of over 3,000 Stars and Stripes artifacts amassed by graphic designer Kit Hinrichs. This book contains over 500 beautifully photographed objects from his collection, most in full-color. The result is a stunning visual history of America’s most treasured symbol. Oversize. Coffee table gift book.
