The revised edition of the WWII MEMORIAL: Jewel of the Mall has finally arrived. It is twentyeight
pages larger with thicker paper and cover stock. It was a great luxury to go back through
the 35,000 images from the original project and 30,000 more recent images from the past eight
years since the Memorial opened. We selected new photos and tweaked old ones. The change to a horizontal format is more in keeping with the Memorial’s low profile and gives the book a “roomy” feel. The new WWII MEMORIAL: Jewel of the Mall also contains more in-depth coverage of the construction process and a sixteen-page section called “A Living Memorial.” Honor Flight is featured in this section, as are many of the activities that occur on this now
most popular National Memorial.
