United We Stand: Flying the American Flag

United We Stand: Flying the American Flag Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

United We Stand collects more than 100 of the most striking covers from the patriotic campaign of the summer of 1942. The United We Stand slogan developed as a result of the response to Pearl Harbor and was used in July of 1942 on over 300 magazines. Published in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution to complement a travelling exhibition of the covers, the book also includes a short introduction on how the campaign began and a selection of patriotic quotations from the magazines themselves. Honoring patriotic spirit and pride, these images remain a moving tribute to a nation and its people standing together. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this book are being donated to The Red Cross in support of relief efforts in New York and Washington D.C.

Synopsis:

To celebrate Independence Day, virtually every major U.S. magazine came together in the summer following Pearl Harbor to feature the image of the American flag on its cover — inspiring a country at war from newsstands across the nation. United We Stand collects more than 100 of the most striking covers from the campaign in this stirring visual tribute. Coinciding with an exhibition of the covers at the Smithsonian Institution, the book also includes an introduction on how the campaign began and a selection of patriotic quotations from the magazines themselves. Sixty years after they first appeared, the images still retain their power to move.
