"The Rise of Barack Obama" is a memorable collection of black and white photos taken by an Award winning photographer who covered Obama for the "Chicago Tribune." Souza's photos start with Obama's U.S. Senate election and run through the heated 2008 primary election.  

Some of the most touching photos include the President-elect at Nelson Mandela's former prison cell in South Africa; sharing a laugh with fellow senators John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, and Bill Nelson; examining dismantled weapons with Dick Lugar in Russia; and getting a hug from Ethel Kennedy.

"Obama: the Historic Campaign in Photos" is a collection of both color and black and white photos, connected with an ongoing narrative of the campaign.

Both would make worthwhile collector's items.  If you buy them on Amazon.com using the Public Library Friends referral link, you can also help out the Library Friends.  Follow these links:

They were taken by my son at an Obama rally in Fredericksburg, VA.

Wow, those are neat!  He can tell he has inherited his father's technical abilities.
