Remembering Brian Wildsmith

Last Wednesday, the talented children's book illustrator, Brian Wildsmith, passed away at the age of 86. To read more about Wildsmith, look at "Brian Wildsmith: Technicolor Art of Wonder and Beauty," an article published in The Independent six years ago. The subtitle is a perfect description of his work--colorful, beautiful, and simply wonderful! If you don't believe me, visit the Library to borrow one of these Wildsmith books [all JP WIL] from our collection: Goat's Trail, Jungle Party, The Little Wood Duck, The Owl and the Woodpecker, Pelican.

Head over to Pinterest, where you'll find the Wildsmith, Brian (Illustrator) board. Someone has pinned nearly 100 of Wildsmith's book covers!
