    One thought on “A Field Guide to Redheads: An Illustrated Celebration”

    1. A cute wee coffee table book with illustrations of famous and not so famous redheads. Elizabeth Graeber has quite a quirky illustration style, sort of cartoonish with interesting watercolour effects. As the synopsis says a nice birthday gift for a redhead - which is what this was ;) !Now, back to novels

    2. Thirty-some odd years ago, I gave birth to my second child, a boy born with tufts of bright orange hair all over his head. To say it was a shock is a great understatement, but after getting over that initial shock and the questions I had to answer - the color of our milkman's hair, for instance - the sheer joy of raising an orange-headed baby boy settled in. Trips to the local grocery store where we ran into old Italian ladies who would pat my boy's head for "good luck" was just one of the inter [...]

    3. This isn't the kind of book you just sit down to read all the way through, but it's cute to have around and would look nice on a decorative bookshelf or coffee table. Some of the watercolor paintings of celebrities are more creepy than they are endearing, but nearly every page made me smile and I learned a few fun facts along the way.

    4. What a disappointment! I thought this was a children's book, given its size and colorful illustrations. It doesn't seem to be geared toward children, and there's not enough content to be satisfying for an adult. Thank goodness all the drawings were labeled, since most of them were unrecognizable.

    5. A lovely and interesting treatise on the rare redhead. Lots of fanciful drawings and interesting facts. So much fun!

    6. Took this book out of the library thinking it would be adorable because i'm a redhead and very proud of it! Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed. Here's three reasons why:1) I got through the book in 20 minutes. And I took my time.2) The illustrations were less than desirable. Many of the drawings did not look like the people they were supposed to be depicting.3) Every page was just a drawing and small description of who or what it was. Very few other facts, such as recipes and only ONE page on the [...]

    7. This book included some not-natural redheads. And some of the descriptions were too short (or non-existent) for less well-known names.Fascinating fact: Malcolm X was a redhead! However, the illustrator seems to have missed the fact that he was a black man.
