A graphic history of how America’s most iconic symbol came to be.

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most famous monuments in the world and it is synonymous with the American Dream. Countless emigrees were welcomed by her imposing presence on arrival at Ellis Island during the 20th Century. A symbol of freedom and hope for millions. But did you know that her very existence was down to the incredible determination and obsession of one man? And this man, Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi was not even an American! Liberty: the improbable story of how America’s most iconic symbol came to be.
