In a career spanning more than three-quarters of a century, Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar has written and illustrated more than thirty children's and young adult books, starting with The Little Fisherman (written by Margaret Wise Brown) in 1945 and including The Cat at Night, One Horse Farm, Hardscrabble Harvest, The Calico Jungle, and My Wonderful Christmas Tree. Her unique and distinctively modern style helped change the role of artwork in children's literature. She first summered and later moved with her husband Adolph to Maine in 1937, where she still lives and continues to paint almost every day. In 2010, she released her first new book in more than twenty years, Dahlov Ipcar's Farmyard Alphabet, which she has followed with two more in the series, Wild Animal Alphabet and Maine Alphabet. In 2012, she was awarded the Maine in America Award from the Farnsworth Art Museum for her outstanding contribution to Maine and its role in American art.
Animal Hide & Seekby Dahlov Ipcar
Sometimes, you need to know what to look for in order to see an animal, even if it's hiding in plain sight! In Animal Hide and Seek, author and artist Dahlov Ipcar first offers young readers portraits of woodland animals and then, on the companion page, sets the animal into its natural setting, camouflaged for the careful reader to find. Gentle prose describes the animals and their habits, from deer to rabbits, from squirrels to salamanders. This book, first published in 1947, was Ipcar's first authored title. It has now been wonderfully restored and reissued to showcase Ipcar's crisp colors and bold lines.
