About this title

Synopsis:

The Franklin Mint's Americana: 50 Years In The Making

For 50 years, the Franklin Mint has been producing beautiful collectibles now found in millions of homes across the world. It all started in 1964 when founder Joe Segel minted a silver coin honoring the late General Douglas MacArthur, and soon the company was creating collectible coins, commemorative medals, sparkling pendants, decorative Christmas ornaments and other valuable art. The product line then expanded into entertainment, with breathtaking creations like the Civil War chess set, the "Star Trek" checkers set, a "Gone with the Wind" collector's plate series, porcelain sculptures, ceramic dolls, jewel-studded knives, die-cast vehicles and more. Take a stroll down memory lane with this beautifully illustrated coffee-table book celebrating the first 50 years of the Franklin Mint!

About the Author:

Walt Whitman (1819-1892), arguably one of America's most influential and innovative poets, was born into a working-class family in West Hills, New York, and grew up in Brooklyn. His "Leaves of Grass, " from which "When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer" comes, is considered one of the central volumes in the history of world poetry. While most other major writers of his time enjoyed a highly structured, classical education at private institutions, Whitman forged his own rough and informal curriculum, and his brief stint at teaching suggests that Whitman employed what were then progressive techniques -- encouraging students to think aloud rather than simply recite, and involving his students in educational games.
