Ponzi for The Wit & Wisdom of Abe Lincoln

Emiliano Ponzi illustrated the cover of The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln: An A-Z Compendium of Quotes from the Most Eloquent of American Presidents (Plume). The book, edited by Alex Ayres, includes the funniest and most profound sayings of the former President and proves that from his youth in pioneer-era Illinois to the embattled White House of the Civil War, Lincoln never lost his capacity for dry humor or his extraordinary gift for eloquence.
