About this title

Synopsis:

A young boy helps his grandfather, an etcher, prepare for a year-end studio print sale. The boy's most important task is to color each etching by hand. His work is tedious, and his mind begins to wander into the world of art as he imagines himself within the very pictures he is coloring. He soon finds himself exploring distant lands and flying over his town in a hot-air balloon. Using a young boy and his grandfather as guides, Arthur Geisert explains how drawings are engraved in copper and printed. He describes the process involved in the intricate art of etching, while his colorful illustrations demonstrate the elegance and beauty of this unique art form.

About the Author:

Arthur Geisert?s unique and exquisite etchings have been widely praised and exhibited at the Chicago Institute of Art, among other museums. His work is regularly selected for the Society of Illustrators?, annual Original Art exhibition, and his illustrations are now being collected by the Dubuque Museum of Art. He lives in a converted bank in Bernard, Iowa.
