Who Was Series #5

Penguin
The Ides of March.
From “Who Was Julius Caesar?”, 2014

I’m currently working on my 24th & 25th “Who Was” titles, so I’m sharing samples from the previous books in an ongoing series over the next few weeks. As I mentioned in the previous post, I did several books in 2014 in rapid succession, so it is hard to pinpoint which order they got completed. “Who Was Julius Caesar?” was the next one, done almost concurrently with “Who Was Isaac Newton?” and “What Was the Lewis & Clark Expedition?” (more on that title next). Here are my personal favorites from that book, and if you are interesting in seeing all the illustrations from that title here is a link to a previous blog post, and here is a link to purchase the book from Amazon.
