216 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w illustrations. "In the course of thirty-five years, the eminent American artist Marcia Brown has written and spoken eloquently concerning children, pictures, and books. This volume brings together thirteen of those major statements, including her three Caldecott acceptance speeches, as well as a moving memoir of her first editor, Alice Dalgliesh. The reader will find here astute comments on books published for children during the past three decades, glimpses of Marcia Brown's early years as a teacher and a storyteller in the New York Public Library, observations about her own techniques and media and her experiences in bookmaking, her beliefs about art for children, and warm recollections about people who have touched her life. 'Lotus Seeds' will have a permanent place on the shelves of professionals who work with children and with books as well as of parents and others who are introducing children to the best in illustrated books." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing on front hinge area. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top of spine, minor rubbing on front panel, very light browning to spine.
