favorite picture books

McCloskey's Books are some of the best in written there are. I prefure his two color ink block prints to his later hand painted works. Make Way for ducklings, Blueberries for Sale are some of my favorite.
 He's perhaps one of the more brillient artists of the last centery, having started in much more classical arts painting nymphs and the like.

There is an increadable amount of sensativity in this little picture from his picture book Blueberries for Sal. Its hard to believe that these are prints from block cuts.
