Inaugurations take place in the blink of an eye amid a swirl of pageantry, but the historic swearing-in of Barack Obama as America's 44th president lives on in this keepsake commemorative photo book that documents the official ceremony, the parade, the crowds, the inaugural balls, and moments both public and private. Featuring images captured by the Washington Post's award-winning photographers and moments memorialized by the Post's writers, this hardcover volume is living history that preserves this unprecedented day.

The Inauguration of Barack Obama documents:

THE JOURNEY TO THE CAPITAL: The President-elect's whistle-stop train tour as it wound its way from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C.
A WELCOME TO WASHINGTON: The public celebration at the Lincoln Memorial that featured a stunning galaxy of stars from the world of entertainment, including Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Garth Brooks, James Taylor, Bono, Mary J. Blige, Shakira, John Mellencamp, and will.i.am.
A DAY OF SERVICE: The Obamas and the Bidens joining hundreds of other selfless volunteers performing public service; the children's concert in the evening that recognized and thanked military families for their commitment; bipartisan dinners hosted by President-elect Obama that honored Senator John McCain, General Colin Powell, and Vice President-elect Joe Biden
INAUGURATION DAY: The solemnity of the oath of office and inaugural address on the steps of the Capitol to the jubilation of the inaugural parade; the pageantry and jubilation of the 10 official inaugural balls, including many events not open to outsiders

All this is presented through 160-pages of sensational full-color photographs, making The Inauguration of Barack Obama the perfect commemoration of this historic day.

From the Publisher:
Photographs of the inauguration of the forty-fourth president feature scenes of his arrival by rail, the opening concert, volunteer activities, and all the events of Inauguration Day itself, along with the text of his inaugural address.
In pictures and text, the full resources of the nation's great newspaper, the Washington Post, commemorate the events of January 20, 2009--the historic inauguration of President Barack Obama. Large, colorful photographs record the official ceremonies, including the taking of the oath of office, the walk down Pennsylvania Avenue and the parade, as well as the many balls that took place around town that evening. Also recorded are the crowds of Americans who came to the nation's capital that day to witness history, as well as private, behind the scenes shots of the presidential couple and their family. Washington Post reporters provide incisive commentary on the events and their significance.
