From the Publisher
Creator of the bestselling The Brick Bible: A New Spin on the
Old Testament and The Brick Bible: The New Testament,
author Brendan Powell Smith offers a new take on American history.
For more than a decade, Smith has honed his masterful work using
LEGO(R) to re-create scenes from the Bible. Now, he turns his
attention to unforgettable US presidential assassinations, both
fatal and failed. Rediscover some of the most profound attacks that
have occurred throughout US history involving the notorious
assassinations on Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, and John F.
Kennedy. But did you also know that Richard Paul Pavlick sought to
assassinate President Kennedy in 1960, though at the last minute he
suddenly changed his mind? Or, that an unknown assailant
desperately tried to murder Lincoln just eight months before his
fatal night at Ford''s Theatre? In addition, Smith reveals failed
murder attempts against such presidents as Gerald Ford, Richard
Nixon, Bill Clinton, and most recently, the 2011 attempt against
President Barack Obama.
With over four hundred highly detailed illustrations, Smith
captivates the authenticity of these assassinations (re-creating
famous photographs and oral history) while simultaneously
demonstrating a creative new medium. Whether a historian or a
LEGO(R) enthusiast, readers of all ages will surely be enthralled
with Brendan Powell Smith''s latest brick creation!
