Written by Tobias Anthony, Illustrated by Carla McCrae
This is a fun illustrated look at how the redheaded community has shaped the modern world—from Vikings to pop stars, and movie legends to Muppets.
Part identification guide (the “50 shades of red” if you will), part historical artifact, Ginger Pride looks at 50 of the most important, influential redheads throughout history—from the legendary Viking Erik the Red and Cleopatra (yes, really) through to more modern gingers, including Ed Sheeran, Louis CK, Lucille Ball, Molly Ringwald, Conan O’Brien, Nicole Kidman and Elmo. With an estimated 18 million gingers in the U.S. alone (up to 6 percent of the population), this book is one for this much-maligned group of people (and their fans) who continue to impact the world.
