It's Columbus Day -- and who would have thought that this guy could be scored today of all days. It was just too perfect, I had to get it.
The illustrations are wonderful, created by the author Ms Genevieve Foster. Ms Foster authored other books in addition to The World of Columbus and His Sons, including George Washington's World, Abraham Lincoln's World, Augustus Caesar's World, and The World of Captain John Smith (Jamestown shout-out!).
The book is filled with charming line drawings of locations across the globe.
Unfortunately, there isn't a colophon, but it looks like a Garamond type, with inline initial capitals -- easy on the eyes.
And the lady herself --
I will now be haunting for the series -- APB out on Genevieve Foster!
