Picture Books by Demi

 
I discovered Demi many years ago when my kids were little. We loved her folk tales, but especially her art. It is so distinctive and fine and we'd spend hours just looking at the pages. I was working on a folktale and decided to revisit her books and again, I was lost in them. She's got the rhythm of the stories just right. When she writes a biography, she chooses the best details. Even her endpapers are gorgeous! If you write picture books, biographies or folk tales, she's an artist to study. And one can only hope that the work is so good that a Pope will give his Apostolic Blessing. Wow!

The art reminds me of Persian miniatures, and of gothic illuminated manuscripts. Gorgeous.

Yes! Exactly. The whole package though, are books to behold and enjoy time after time.

I love, love her books. Somehow we don't own any (golly, I need to remedy that!) but we check them out from the library over and over. I love that I enjoy them every bit as much as my kids.

Faith, you must remedy the situation at once. I usually buy a book if I've checked it out more than a couple of times from the library. But thank God for libraries!!!
