Classic American Children’s Illustrators
Years ago, a book called Mommy, It’s a Renoir! suggested you introduce art to children with art postcards. And that was all the justification/rationalization I needed. One of the secret benefits to bibliophiles who homeschool is that an indulgence can morph into needed curriculum faster than you can say amazon dot com. Who says this job doesn’t have bennies?
So these can function as picture books for toddlers; add a cute frame and you have a baby shower gift; write a note and you have a classy postcard. Or if you are like me, they are just a delight-filled item that will make you smile.
Who comes immediately to mind (but I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone important): Jessie Wilcox Smith, Beatrix Potter, Alan Lee, Kate Greenaway, Tasha Tudor, Garth Williams.
