Synopsis

"My First Nursery Book" tells the stories "Who Killed Cock Robin?", "The Gingerbread Man", "Three Little Pigs" and "The Three Bears" with uniquely beautiful period illustrations that look as fresh and vital today as they did six decades ago. A true masterpiece of book design and illustration, the book was first published in 1947 and has been unavailable for over sixty years. Themerson was a Polish avant-garde artist and filmmaker who turned to children's book illustration as a refugee in London in the 1940s, discovering a talent that is unique in the field. As the critic Jasia Reichardt explains in an accompanying note on the artist, she never patronises her audience, but 'treats her readers as partners in the discovery of the...minutiae of life. And this clarity is matched by the wit, charm and originality of the design and illustrations.'Lovingly republished from the original proofs to its original specification, this classic children's book is now made available to a new generation, so that children once again can discover just how beautiful the best storybooks can be.
