For The Revolution

A decently appropriate post for the fourth, no? I didn’t read this immediately after it came out, though I did pre-order it. Instead, I sort of took my time, though, admittedly that was partly due to my first copy missing something like 17 pages. That’s right, I now have two copies – one that’s complete and one that doesn’t even contain the page in the above photo. It’s inimitable, it’s original. (That was poor, I apologize.) The narrative is decidedly wonderful, but, honestly, it’s worth it just for the photography.

Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter tells the story of the creation of the Tony winning show Hamilton. At it’s heart, the tome is a love letter to the cast and crew, and support, of the phenomenon. Additionally, it features a plethora of high quality photos and all the quickly spat lyrics, with additional insight on the real people the story is based on (that is, Alexander Hamilton, et al).
