A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination

Longtime disinformation collaborator Bryan Young (producer of the classic obesity film Killer At Large) has a new book in the works and he’s looking for funding via Kickstarter. He has our backing and we endorse the project should you care to lend yours.

Here’s their project description:

A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination is a beautifully illustrated book born of a child’s desire to learn and a father’s belief that gaining knowledge should be fun and uplifting. It is designed to educate, entertain, and enlighten children from ages 1 to 100.

A couple of years ago, while visiting Washington D.C. for a writer’s workshop, author Bryan Young visited Ford’s Theatre, the site of John Wilkes Booth’s assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. When he returned home, he showed his children the many pictures he had taken from his trip. To his delight and surprise, his daughter Scout was incredibly interested in the subject of Lincoln’s assassination, and Presidential assassinations in general.

After looking extensively for a book suitable for a child her age on the subject that would be both educational and engaging, Bryan came to the realization that no such book existed.

This book is the result of that quest. After countless hours of research into the history of Presidential Assassination, Bryan developed the words that you will find in this important and entertaining book. But Scout demanded something further of her book – it had to have pictures, and good ones.

Bryan contacted artist Erin Kubinek, and a collaboration was born that would create a truly unique work of historical education. Each illustration in A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination brings this subject to life in a way that will activate the imaginations and ignite the interest of children and adults.

    Thanks so much, guys!

  2. Will it cover JFK? I really feel it ought to. If not, that sort of kills my interest. I can’t imagine covering all of the others and leaving that one out. It would be rather like writing a book of sea vessel tragedies and leaving out Titanic.

      It does cover JFK! All 4 assassinated presidents are covered, as well as 8 who had major attempts on their life. The illustration above comes from the Andrew Jackson chapter. Both Roosevelt boys are covered, Reagan as well, and others.
