Peter Sís, bees

[personal profile] mallorys_camera and I went to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, where we enjoyed especially the art of Peter Sís, who has a way with fine lines, labyrinths, and rich colors (especially his blues I love). His art was better as paintings on a wall than as illustrations in a book; somehow they were diminished in book form, which isn't always the case with picture book art.

Here's a picture from a book he did about Tibet (his father got lost in Tibet for two years).



And here's one of birds on a journey--beautiful as a picture, but the story was posey and precious in a way I dislike.



After visiting the museum, we walked a bit and saw these bees, doing their golden work on goldenrod. Thank you, bees.

Isnt it sometimes that way. You like the cover of the book, but the actual story inside is just words and nothing else. I have a few books like that.

For books like those, we can agree to just enjoy the cover and not fret about the insides ;-)
