PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) February 18, 2020
Roman & Littlefield Publishers announces the release of Fakes, Forgeries, and Frauds, a book that explores what’s real and what’s fake – and most pressingly, why do we care?
In this time of false news and fake science these questions are more important than ever.
Philadelphia-based author Nancy Moses goes beyond the headlines, tweets, and blogs to explore the true nature of authenticity and why it means so much.
Delivering nine fascinating true stories about such luminaries as Shakespeare, Rembrandt, and Jackson Pollock, the book and e-book are available on Amazon.com and through Roman & Littlefield Publishers.
Fakes, Forgeries, and Frauds is a full-color book with 30 color photos. It shows that reality can be unsettling and plainly weird. Readers discover things that are less than meets the eye—and might even reconsider what’s real, what’s fake, and why they should care.
