Whimsical Illustrated Guide Aquaints You with 100 Famous Redheads

How often do you see a red­head­ed per­son walk­ing down the street? Prob­a­bly not that much—people with this hair col­or account for less than 2% of the pop­u­la­tion. Illus­tra­tor Eliz­a­beth Grae­ber cel­e­brates the­se rare indi­vid­u­als in her book A Field Guide to Red­heads. The petite hard­bound book fea­tures 100 famous red­heads (real and fic­tion­al) that run the gamut from straw­ber­ry to gin­ger to auburn to amber. Plus, Elizabeth—a red­head herself—has includ­ed some bak­ing recipes and cock­tails, as well as facts about this stun­ning hair col­or.

I received a copy and had a lot of fun pour­ing through it. To give you an idea of the delight­ful, ener­get­ic illus­tra­tions, I made a short video that fea­tures near­ly all of Elizabeth’s inky por­traits.

Here’s an even better look at the cover and several spreads:
