Margot and Kaethe Zemach Exhibition Catalog
Margot Zemach

From the exhibition Dancing Line and Merry Color: The Worlds of Margot and Kaethe Zemach, July 25, 2004 - November 7, 2004

"The Zemach Legacy" by Peter Zeumeyer.
Catalog Design by Rita Marshall.
24 Illustrations, Paper, 32 pages.
1,000 copies, First Edition.

From "Acknowledgments," by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"When I first encountered the work of Margot Zemach - specifically the drawing for Duffy and the Devil: A Cornish Tale - I marveled at the vibrant combination of line and color that was redolent of the 18th-century caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson. Zemach's work also reverberates with the work of such American contemporaries as Maurice Sendak and William Steig, and the fluctuating line weight of her pencil recalls the draftsmanship of Howard Pyle at his most energetic. Throughout, Zemach's art is informed by an irrepressible wit."

Includes: "A Conversation with Maurice Sendak" conducted by Leonard S. Marcus.
28 Illustrations, 32 pages.


From "Introduction," by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"It is fitting that the work of Maurice Sendak comprises the inaugural exhibit of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. While an acknowledged master of the genre, his creative talent extends well beyond the picture book. Sendak has garnered high esteem in the realm of costume and set design for opera...As we honor picture book art and demonstrate its substance and sophistication, Sendak's industrious career permits us to look at the material from a broad art-historical vantage point. We have chosen to view his work through the lens of interior scenes and landscapes."

Mitsumasa Anno Exhibition Catalog

"Adventures in Imagination" by Ann Beneduce.
Catalog Design by Rita Marshall.
24 Illustrations, Paper, 32 pages.
1,000 copies, First Edition.

From "Acknowledgments," by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is honored to host the first major exhibition of Mitsumasa Anno in America. Anno's art is an intriguing interplay of Western and Asian aesthetic principles. In works for such books as Topsy-Turvies and Upside-Downers or his independent art, one encounters myriad art-historical references ranging from M.C. Escher and Jacob van Ruisdael to Leonardo da Vinci. In The Tale of the Heike, of course, Anno pays homage to the venerable tradition of Japanese scroll painting. Anno is omnivorous in his visual appetite, yet there is always a subtlety and grace-and, yes, wit-embedded in his work."

It manages all this while fostering a uniquely immersive reading experience." - Leonard S. Marcus

Ashley's art is the embodiment of a gesamkunstwerk - where the image, the word, and the music of the word all come to the fore."

Picturing the World: The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen Exhibition Catalog
Nancy Willard

"The Well-Tempered Book" by Nancy Willard.
Catalog Design by Rita Marshall.

1,000 copies, First Edition.

From "Acknowledgments" by H. Nichols B. Clark.
"We are delighted to present the exhibition, Picturing the World: The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen, and we recognize that much of what is on view constitutes a seamless collaboration between Alice and her late husband Martin. During a project, they passed works back and forth, so that their hands are virtually inseparable. Since Martin's death in 1987, Alice has continued to create wonderful books. They cover a broad spectrum of subject matter, crossing time and space. Her independent books retain the affinity for a flow and sequence of image both she and Martin learned in the animation studios during the 1940s. Of equal importance, their books forged an ongoing passion for untutored naive art - from Edward Hicks to Douanier Rousseau - that reflect the simple, rural life the Provensens embraced in the 1950s."

From "Acknowledgments" by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"We are delighted to present Quentin Blake: The Theater of the Page, a selection of work from the career of this distinguished artist. In Great Britain, Blake is a national treasure; in America, he is best known for his devishly exquisite illustrations for Roald Dahl's children's books. But there is so much more, and this exhibition, while concentrating on his children's book illustration, hopes to heighten awareness of Blake's broad range of talent."

"The Picture Book Revolution" by Michael Patrick Hearn.
Catalog Design by Rita Marshall.
32 Ilustrations, Paper, 32 pages.
1,000 copies, First Edition.

From "Acknowledgments," by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"We are privileged to host the exhibition of this extraordinary material, surveying Russian children's book illustration from the very end of the nineteenth century to the outbreak of World War II. It is all the more appropriate, since one of the central figures, Vladimir Lebedev, was so influential to Eric Carle's training as a graphic designer. In Russian terms, the exhibition covers the last years of rule under the tsars to the zenith of Stalin's ruthless power. As guest curator Michael Patrick Hearn observes, the beginning of this era marked a turning point in Russian cultural history when books and art began to be created and produced indigenously. Mindful of international currents, Russian book design embraced foreign sources while bringing its own aesthetic into play."

"Igniting the Imagination" by Tony DiTerlizzi

"This showcase highlights the powerful force of imagination. From old fairy tales illuminated by the likes of Arthur Rackham to the endless retellings of stories like the one Holly [Black] and I have spun, this force continues with the multitude of artists that made this film. They have sketched, sculpted, constructed, rendered, sewed, photographed and breathed life into the very same creatures that have entertained and enchanted us for centuries. I'd like to think that this collection of work just might inspire the next generation of fantastical creators. I know the 13-year-old in me can't wait to see what's next." - Tony DiTerlizzi, "Igniting the Imagination"

The Golden Age to the Modern Era Exhibition Catalog

From the exhibition The Golden Age to the Modern Era: The Michael and Esther Droller Collection, November 6, 2016 - January 29, 2017

40 pages, full color.

It started when Michael Droller received a framed reproduction of a Maxfield Parrish painting as a graduation present from medical school. The gift ignited his passion for illustration, a passion that has long sustained Droller outside his career in medicine. Over 40 years, he and his wife Esther have amassed an enviable collection rich in literary history and artistic achievement. Artists from the Golden Age of illustration - a period of extraordinary creative ferment from 1875 to World War I - include Randolph Caldecott, Walter Crane, and Kate Greenaway, as well as later but accomplished practitioners Frank Adams, L. Leslie Brooke, and W. Heath Robinson. The Droller's modern holdings, spanning the last quarter of the 20th century, comprise such luminaries as Barbara Cooney, Alice and Martin Provensen, and Maurice Sendak. Thematic subjects bridge both epochs, allowing artistic comparisons between Arthur Rackham's and Jerry Pinkney's versions of Aesop's Fables to Charles Robinson's and Michael Hague's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Includes essay "Could You Kindly Snap It Up with the Meaning of Life?" by Guest Curator, Jane Bayard Curley. "It is such a wonderful thing to meet a gifted illustrator or a talented writer. Kalman happens to be both. When I was introduced to her, it was no surprise to find she was just like her work: funny, smart, and an undisputed champion for the universal appeal of the picture book. Are they for children? Yes. Adults? You better believe it. Bring on the books with pictures. Her highly personal and somewhat eccentric worldview appeals to anyone who wants to be verbally and visually amused and challenged."

Denslow's illustrations for the first edition down to recent times. As well as those of Denslow, works by his successor John R.

From "A Centenary Tribute" by Barbara Elleman, Guest Curator
"On this centenary of her birth, Burton's techniques and style have earned her a secure place in children's literature. 'Those telling lines' she created still bring alive a sturdy steam shovel, a snowplow called to duty, a cable car ready to take on the steepest street, a legendary archer prepared to do battle, and a little house happy again in a hillside full of flowers. Together they personify the joy and love of life that were so much a part of Virginia Lee Burton and which she has given so abundantly to children through her books."
