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.
