A Grand Old Flag
“America is the other big giant in the room. Perhaps, tellingly, many illustrated books this season refer to America’s past, from DK’s A Grand Old Flag, by Kevin and Peter Keim, to an illustrated edition of David McCullough’s 1776...
One shouldn’t assume that these Americana books romanticize the past unquestioningly. A Grand Old Flag, in particular, vividly demonstrates the divisiveness that is at the center of American democracy. Kevin and Peter Keim, father and son flag collectors, weave a fascinating history around the iconic image that changes over the years, but, as they say, FOREVER WAVES.”
