Jonathan Fetter-Vorm is an author and illustrator. His Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb was selected by the American Library Association as a Best Graphic Novel for Teens in 2013. Featuring breathtaking panoramas and revelatory, unforgettable images, Battle Lines: A Graphic History of the Civil War (Hill and Wang), is a collaboration between the award-winning historian Ari Kelman and Fetter-Vorm, which showcases various objects from the conflict (a tattered American flag from Fort Sumter, a pair of opera glasses, a bullet, an inkwell, and more), along with a cast of soldiers, farmers, slaves, and well-known figures, to trace an ambitious narrative that extends from the early rumblings of secession to the dark years of Reconstruction.
