Last week. I was in the children's s room in the library trying to locate a picture book to share that was new to me, one that really stirred my imagination. As funny as it sounds, I was not having much luck. That is, until I happened upon Over In The Meadow my John Langstaff, illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky.
I was instantly mesmerized by the beautifully designed and rendered illustrations. It also struck me how modern the art work appears. It's way ahead of its time, and has clearly been a source of inspiration to many a contemporary artist. This book was published in 1957. It's kind of amazing.
In the future, I'll be buying a few copies of Over In The Meadow to give as gifts to some little friends and family.
