Constitutional Covers: “The Heart of the Constitution” by Gerard Magliocca

April 14th, 2017

One of the oldest features on this blog profiles new books about constitutional law that feature graphical representations of the Constitution on the cover. Hence, constitutional covers. See my previous discussions of Constitutional Covers for LeeChemerinsky, Balkin, Greve, Epps, Seidman, and my initial (and thankfully) unused design of my own.

The latest entry in this series is “The Heart of the Constitution” by Gerard Magliocca.

The illustration represents the twelve amendments proposed by the First Congress as parts of the chambers and valves of the heart. This is a very craft and creative way to represent the theme of the book. I like it!
