Description
To celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the Caldecott Medal and another decade of award-winning picture books, noted childrens book historian Leonard S. Marcus has updated this absorbing and informative picture of the worlds most prestigious illustration award and seven of its acclaimed winners: Robert McCloskey, Marcia Brown, Maurice Sendak, William Steig, Chris Van Allsburg, David Wiesner, and now Mordicai Gerstein. Along with a newly added preface and an introduction that provides a historical perspective on the origins of the award, Marcus takes us into the studios and behind the drawing boards of these seven noteworthy artists, each representing a decade of the awards history. Through personal anecdotes and glimpses of their prize-winning books and works in progress, from doodles to sketches to dummies to finished art, readers will find out how their favorite picture books were imagined and created. The artists reveal their inspirations, work processes, and private reactions to receiving this unparalleled honor.
