Synopsis

This charming ABC book from Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar contains an original illustration done especially for this edition, her first new children's book illustration in more than twenty years. The Maine wildlife and coastal scenes are near and dear to her heart, and this new book serves as a kind of love letter to her home state where she lived and worked for almost seventy-five years, where, as she writes, A is for animals, wild and free, and W is for woodlands of wonder for you and for me.

Dahlov Ipcar was born in Vermont, raised in Greenwich Village, and summered in Maine after her parents (the famed sculptor William Zorach and artist Marguerite Zorach) bought a farm on Georgetown Island in 1923.Thirteen years later, eighteen-year-old Dahlov, an aspiring artist, married Adoph Ipcar. The young couple left New York City in 1937 to live on the Maine farm where they first met. By the early 1940s, she had nearly given up thoughts of writing and illustrating books, but was contacted by a New York publisher to illustrate The Little Fisherman, the latest title by Margaret Wise Brown. This charming title helped launch a four-decade run that saw her write and illustrate more than thirty children's books of her own. Today, her artwork is known worldwide, with pieces in the collections of numerous renowned museums. Dahlov died in 2017 at the age of 99.
