A fully illustrated tribute to the history-making president, assembled by the editors of ESSENCE…

As the first African-American President of the United States, Barack Obama entered the White House already assured of a prominent place in the history books – and the focus of almost impossibly intense cultural hopes, expectations, and fears.

But there was more. Not since Franklin Roosevelt had a new President faced such a national crisis – or such virulent opposition – as did Barack Obama. With unfailing dignity, grace, thoughtfulness, eloquence, and razor-sharp wit Obama renewed America in ways we are only just beginning to realize.
Indeed, Obama is ending his Presidency on a growing wave of popularity and appreciation.

Now Easton Press and the editors of Essence Magazine are proud to present the richly illustrated tribute, ESSENCE: BARACK OBAMA , an exclusive leather-bound Collector Edition.

Celebrating Barack, Michelle, and the Obama legacy.

As the Obama era comes to its end, Essence salutes the President and the First Family with a stirring celebration of their historic eight years at the forefront of American life.

At the center is Obama himself. These pages chronicle his greatest triumphs and challenges and record how he evolved into one of the most politically and culturally significant Presidents ever.

And he couldn't have done it without Michelle. An icon of style and grace and eloquent advocate for children, Michelle Obama redefined the role of First Lady and has become a role model for women around the world.

“The memories that last ultimately are the family memories,” President Obama tells us, and ESSENCE: BARACK OBAMA gives special attention to our memories of the First Family and how the Obamas have been an inspiration to families and young people everywhere.

Featuring glorious full-color photographs and an exclusive interview in which the President and First Lady reflect on their experience and the legacy they hope to leave, ESSENCE: BARACK OBAMA is a stirring remembrance of a Presidency that changed America.

An Obama keepsake in an enduring Collector Edition.

The Easton Press Collector Edition is a volume of superlative beauty, design, and craftsmanship created to honor and preserve the achievement of Barack Obama's Presidency.

The binding is premium leather, hand-selected and cut from the finest whole hides for this edition. The spine is reinforced by raised “hubs” -- a feature long regarded as the hallmark of fine bookmaking – and is accented with true 22k gold.

The thrilling history and magnificently reproduced photographs are preserved on beautiful and durable acid-neutral paper that will not turn brittle with age. And the pages are thread-sewn into the binding – not merely glued as in ordinary books.

Featuring luminous gilded page ends, moiré end sheets, heavy duty binding boards, and a satin page marker, this volume represents the state-of-the-art in fine handcrafted bookmaking.

The Collector Edition ESSENCE: BARACK OBAMA is a stirring one-of-a-kind retrospective that truly captures the 'essence' of Barack Obama and his historic presidency.
