Firebrands: Portraits from the Americas: By Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative; ed. Shaun Slifer and Bec Young, 192 pgs. By Lauren Trout

Aug 31, 2010

A diverse group of people are portrayed in this collection of biographies. The focus is on the same sort of under-appreciated historical luminaries that Howard Zinn wrote about in A People’s History of the United States. Each of the seventy-eight people profiled are immortalized with a beautifully drawn portrait, a well-researched but concise biography, and a particularly memorable quote. The artists who put this together did an amazing job. –Lauren Trout (Microcosmpublishing.com)
