|50th Anniversary Edition, To Kill a Mockingbird|

I love the silhouette look of this cover art- it is gorgeous.
The following letter is from Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, to a young fan who wrote and asked for a signed picture of the author.

I don’t have a picture of myself, so please accept these few lines:
As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, “I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal.”
(Signed, ‘Harper Lee’)
After reading that, it is easy to see how the infamous character of Atticus Finch came from the imagination of Harper Lee.
