The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen
This large-format, high-page-count monograph is the definitive tome on the work of the prolific Provensen husband-and-wife team. The book includes many never-before-seen sketches and development work for many of their books; exquisite drawings from their extensive travel journals; and many personal paintings, illustrations, photographs, and artifacts. The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen is the first-ever monograph on this beloved mid-century husband-and-wife illustration team. This award-winning pair created more than 40 beloved children's books over the span of seven decades, many of which appeared on the New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year lists. From early favorites for Golden Books such as The Color Kittens by Margaret Wise Brown, 1949, to their Caldecott-winning title The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot, 1983, the Provensens' books inspired generations of young readers. This beautiful volume showcases hundreds of their well-known illustrations, their signature design for Kellogg's Tony the Tiger mascot, 1952, as well as many never-before-seen paintings, ideations, travel sketchbooks, and ephemera. The Provensens' colorful, inimitable artwork is a treasure trove for designers, illustrators, literary historians, and all who cherish classic children's books. FIRST MONOGRAPH: This is the first-ever, long-overdue monograph on this influential and revered husband-and-wife illustration team. UNIQUE VIEWPOINT: Their mid-century hand-drawn style is vintage and charming and has influenced a generation of illustrators and designers. IDEAL GIFT/COVETABLE OBJECT: This is an ideal gift for fans of mid-century modern design and illustration, art-book collectors, and anyone looking for the perfect coffee-table book. VINTAGE: There has been a resurgence of appreciation of hand-done illustration as opposed to art produced digitally. This book is a nostalgic look-back at classic, vintage, and beloved children's books and two of the premier illustrators of the genre. MERCH/DISPLAY OPPORTUNITIES: Colorful, whimsical, and charming, this is an ideal book for retailers to merchandise. Perfect for: Illustrated children's book collectors and fans, design enthusiasts, illustrators, art students, fans of mid-century modernism, book collectors, art aficionados, aesthetes
