Lincoln described himself for the ages thus,

" If any personal description of me is thought desirable, it may be said, I am, in height, six feet, four inches, nearly; lean in flesh, weighing, on an average, one hundred and eighty pounds; dark complexion, with coarse black hair, and grey eyes -- no other marks or brands recollected"Abraham Lincoln . December 20, 1859 - Autobiography

Now we can see the man as self-described with our own eyes.

lincoln photos

"... the photos are a significant modification to the library of Lincoln photos and give a more realistic vision of the man, I feel that it is likely that future images of Lincoln will include the digital color images in conjunction with the black and white historical photos."

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum has the complete Color of Lincoln photographs as part of the reference collection. The gift was received at the Library in early May, 2008 and marks a significant milestone as the public has available the first and most complete Abraham Lincoln color photograph collection.

(Bryan Eaton - January, 2009)

Comments from Lincoln historians :

"Bryan Eatonís colorization of the Lincoln photographs stands as an excellent example of an Ďa-ha!í moment of invention. We see his work and say to ourselves, ĎWhy didnít someone think of doing this sooner?í But no one had... I applaud his technical prowess, his organizational acumen, and his artistic aplomb in bringing Abraham Lincolnís immemorial visage into the 21st century. The book is a substantial contribution to the history of photography, of colorization, and of Lincoln iconography."

- James Cornelius, Curator, Lincoln Collection, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library
