100 American Flags: A Unique Collection Of Old Glory Memorabilia (The Collector's Eye)

The American flag has been raised high in wartime triumph and peacetime celebration; sewn lovingly onto quilts, caps, pillows, and bags; appropriated by popular culture; and faithfully honored every Fourth of July. This vibrant collection of 100 Stars and Stripes artifacts ranges from Civil War-era banners and Native American braided moccasins to an early 20th-century "friendship" kimono and original flag art by several of the world's leading designers. Destined to captivate folk-art aficionados, history buffs, and collectors, 100 AMERICAN FLAGS provides a stunning visual history of America's most treasured symbol. A timely, patriotic full-color book presenting 100 American flag artifacts from one of the world's most eminent collectors, designer Kit Hinrichs. Selected images from LONG MAY SHE WAVE in an affordable, collectible edition. Election year and wartime keepsake, displaying nonpartisan national pride.

100 American Flags is a very well-done, educational little book. Perfect for a Hostess gift for a 4th. of July Party. That's why I bought two - one for me and one for a dear friend who collects Americana and has a HUGE 4th. of July Bash every year.

Compiled by one of the grandfathers of modern print design, this book, which features items from Kit Hinrichs' own personal collection, is a wonderful artistic expression of the Stars & Stripes through antique American flags, patriotic memorbilia, and art. I highly recommend it.Jeff Bridgman, dealer in antique flags, [...]

I was very pleased with the quick delivery. I knew what I was ordering because I had seen the author on Martha Stewart. It was a great overview of his book. I am a Patriotic and flag nut, and this was right up my alley. I was not disappointed with this purchase.

I never thought I would write the headline above. Though I haven't read the book I've given it five stars because I've seen everything in it in a much better version: Long May She Wave: A Graphic History of the American Flag.Kit Hinrich's flag collection was originally published in 2001 as a much more sumptuous book from the same publisher. In fact '100 American flags' is just a drastically cut down version. The first book has five hundred flag images, 224 large pages, beautifully designed and printed. Perhaps best of all new copies are still available at about the same price as this later much smaller book, check around the net.
