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!
