Summary:
A three-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, David Wiesner is one of the most highly acclaimed book illustrators in the world. This volume is the first to examine his creative process and his many sources of inspiration. The book features dozens of color plates, from early work to the watercolors that are the basis of his best-known books, along with pages excerpted from his first graphic novel, Fish Girl. Also included are works by some of the artists most influential to Wiesner, including Marvel comic book legends, Surrealist and avant-garde masters, and mid-20th-century graphic artists. While illustration has often been marginalized in the world of fine art, the vibrant interplay among paintings, prints, comic books, graphic novels, iconic 20th-century films, and cartoons in Wiesner's art gives evidence to the complexity of the American tradition of picture book illustration.
