Featuring the works of William Blake, Robert Louis Stevenson, Lewis Carroll, and others, this enchanting collection presents nearly 100 classic childhood poems illustrated by a master of the Art Nouveau style. Willy Pogany recaptures the wide-eyed wonderment of such favorites as "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "A Visit from St. Nicholas."
In addition to his work as an illustrator of classics, Hungarian-born artist Willy Pogany served as an art director on several Hollywood films, including Fashions of 1934 and Dames. He was also an author and teacher whose instructive manuals include Dover's Drawing Lessons.
