Eyes Down

Sheila Keenan. I Spy the Illuminati Eye: What's the Big Secret? Penguin Workshop (1 Jan. 2019)

This irreverent, illustrated guide takes a look with an all-seeing, skeptical eye at the history and mystery of the cultural phenomenon that's got middle-school kids flashing finger triangles and scrutinising dollar bills for signs of the Illuminati. It's the first pop culture companion to the shadowy group behind everything from the French Revolution to Jay-Z's fabulous rise. How did an eighteenth-century philosophical society infiltrate governments, banks, the media, the military, Hollywood, and hip-hop? . . . Or did they? Kids everywhere want to know who's in, who's not, and what all those signs, symbols, and secret rituals are really about. Is it all really real? Find out in this fun guide to all things illuminati.
