Twelve Years A Slave (illustrated)
Solomon Northup was born a free man in New York State. At the age of 33 he was kidnapped in Washington D.C. and placed in an underground slave pen. Northup was transported by ship to New Orleans where he was sold into slavery. He spent the next 12 years working as a carpenter, driver, and cotton picker. This narrative reveals how Northup survived the harsh conditions of slavery, including smallpox, lashings, and an attempted hanging. Solomon Northup was among a select few who were freed from slavery. His account describes the daily life of slaves in Louisiana, their diet and living conditions, the relationship between master and slave, and how slave catchers used to recapture runaways. Northup's first person account published in 1853, was a dramatic story in the national debate over slavery that took place in the nine years leading up to the start of the American Civil War.
Scarlett Johansson : The Illustrated Biography
Born in 1985 in New York, young Scarlett Marie Johansson has already achieved a cinematic career of stellar proportions, swiftly becoming an icon to both genders.
Ubiquitous as the face of Calvin Klein, L'Oreal and Reebok, and described as the new Marilyn Monroe by "Vogue" magazine, she's also proved her mettle as a quality thespian, starring in movies as diverse as literary, intelligent Woody Allen features, gung-ho action romps like Michael Bay's "The Island", and of course alternative, hip fare like the film which made her name known the world over, Sofia Coppola's much-lauded "Lost In Translation".
Searching for the essence of her luminous star quality, this book takes a critical look at her work, and traces her transformation from talented child actress to Hollywood icon.

He was orphaned at thirteen, became an apprentice at a counting house, and found his way to the English colony of America for formal education. From these humble beginnings, he would rise to be the top aid of General Washington during the Revolutionary War, represent the state of New York as a delegate at the Constitutional Convention, and become the first Secretary of the Treasury for the fledgling United States of America. His untimely and violent death would draw his life to a close, but his legacy lives on.
