242 pp, 4to (11 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "A stunning achievement, 'Myth, Magic, and Mystery' brings together the work of nearly every prominent children's book illustrator of the twentieth century. Developed for a nationwide, touring exhibition beginning at The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia in June 1996, this book stands alone as a portable encyclopedia of the 'masters' of the genre. Included here are the works of such popular illustrators as N.C. Wyeth, Chris Van Allsburg, Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss, Edward Gorey, Tomi Ungerer, and others; a special feature of the book is a complete 'alphabet' created from a selection of the classic ABC books by the likes of Richard Scarry and 'Curious George' creator H.A. Rey. (This) will be a volume to be treasured alongside the classics themselves, a book to be sought after for moments of quiet contemplation or recollections of sheer joy." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, light rubbing on covers, tiny dent on fore-edge of text block, tiny stain on bottom of text block.
