Description:
New York and Cleveland: The World Publishing Company, 1969. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. Carle, Eric. First printing, oblong quarto, 28 pp., in first issue dust jacket. Eric Carle (b. 1929) is known world-wide for this, his third book, which has been translated into more than 60 languages and has sold more than 50 million copies, garnering numerous awards along the way including the American Institute of Graphic Arts Award in 1970 and the Nakamori Reader's Prize in Japan in 1975; Carle was awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal in 2003 by the American Library Association and was a U.S. nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2010. Carle's style consists of using hand-painted tissue papers and creating a collage, which is then reproduced via offset colour lithography. This book, with its multiple die-cut pages as the caterpillar eats his way through various foodstuffs, created such a challenge for US printers that the publisher eventually found a printer in Japan.… Read More
