Description
A true masterpiece of book design and illustration for beginning readers, this collection pairs well-known nursery tales with uniquely beautiful period illustrations that look as fresh and vital today as they did six decades ago, when the book was first published in Great Britain. Never before published in the United States, My First Nursery Book features four beloved stories: "Who Killed Cock Robin?," "The Gingerbread Man," "Three Little Pigs," and "The Three Bears." Franciszka Themerson, a Polish avant-garde artist and filmmaker who returned to children's book illustration as a refugee in London in the 1940s, is regarded as one of the great talents in classic children's book illustration. Finally, American children can experience and enjoy this remarkable volume, filled with stunning illustrations that will bring a new audience to Themerson's genius.
