About this Item

Illustrated with photographs by B.A. King, and with color drawings by the King children. Addison House Inc., and Black Ice Publishers (1978). Oblong quarto, measuring 11 by 13 inches; this copy specially bound in cloth with a hand-painted front cover of decorative paste-paper boards. 64 pages, copiously illustrated. A very fine copy. Signed by Tony King. A collaborative work whose images formed the basis of a ground-breaking exhibition at the Worcester Art Museum in 1974. ".Each of the four children, whose work was collected in the normal course of family life, and who knew nothing of its transformation until the show opened, has an individual drawing style." These styles range from open line drawings of objects to precise futuristic imaginings to richly colored fantasies to primitive abstract configurations. King has meticulously inserted his photographs into the a commentary, as an emblem, or as an integral piece reinforcing the drawing. Then, using only the images themselves for his inspiration, the legendary Tomie De Paola created a magical text to accompany them. The result is a timeless and delightful book intended to be enjoyed by children, parents, and grandparents alike. Bookseller Inventory # 637
