Timed to publish with the opening of the Statue of Liberty Museum, this is Lady Liberty's untold story of her building, restoration, and iconic place in the world as brought to life through the fascinating lens of archival images, ephemera from the museum's collection, and today's most compelling photography--restored and resplendent against the New York City skyline.

Following Rizzoli's acclaimed series with the September 11 Memorial and Museum-- The Stories They Tell and No Day Shall Erase You --we now are partnering with the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation to publish this official book on the Statue of Liberty. The material from the book will be drawn from the collections and archives that will be on display in the brand new Statue of Liberty Museum--opening in May 2019

The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument. It is a symbol of freedom that draws more than four million visitors annually from around the world. Officially named "Liberty Enlightening the World," the statue was a joint effort between America and France to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. The book follows the story as told in the new Museum--from its conception and creation to its restoration in 1986 to Lady Liberty's place as a shining icon to the world.

First published in the United States of America in 2019 by Rizzoli Electa.
