WWII Memorial: Jewel of the Mall is a 116 page full-color photographic book on the WWII Memorial with an introduction by Senator Robert Dole and photographs by Stephen R. Brown. The photographs are exclusive never-to-be duplicated images as Brown had access to the site and cranes as the World War II Memorial was built.
Brown also photographed the creation of the 18-foot high 80,000-pound bronze sculptural eagles and related pieces which adorn the World War II Memorial. The documentation of the “lost wax” process in itself is a unique peek into sculptural history. The book features panoramic scenes of the new face of the Mall; documentary of the creation and installation of the sculpture and marble ornamentation that makes this new Memorial such a dramatic work.
