I'm out of my wacky phase and into my detailed illustration phase for the moment .
I love the illustrations in this book. In fact, Palmer Brown does very detailed, and yet homey illustrations that just call to me. The only bits I know about him (yes, him) is that he was born in 1919 in Chicago, IL. and that he published only five books in the 1950's. There's no date of death, but just as suddenly as his work appeared, it disappeared again. He's not well known nowdays, but his work is detailed, delicate and exquisite.
