Lee Burton is one of THE greatest book artists of the twentieth century. She was a brilliant
storyteller who intuitively understood a child's point of view and a
highly expressive artist who was a master of technique and craft whose
work embodied her era and was massively influential on her peers and,
especially, on the generations who followed, growing up and into ever
increasing appreciations of her work. Anyone who has yet to
experience the works below, is hereby heartily encouraged to make an
effort to do so: the effort will be amply rewarded.
And, anyone interested in learning more about this amazing artist
– and discovering some of her amazing unpublished art work –
is hereby directed to this excellent volume.
