Editorial Reviews

Barbara Elleman
"What you want is entirely a state of mind. I think happiness is a state of mind. Everything here gives me satisfaction. My home, my garden, my animals, the weather, the state of Vermont." With these words Tudor brings together the crux of her philosophy--one made famous through her children's book illustrations. Her highly prized books and artwork sing of life in the 1830s: a time, Tudor says, she is irresistibly drawn to. Her home in Vermont and her entire life-style echo this spirit as she lives each day--without twentieth-century amenities--gardening, milking her goats, spinning and weaving, and drawing pictures. Brown, a noted photographer, takes readers on a seasonal photographic tour of this world, bringing to life Tudor's home, gardens, boisterous complement of corgis, and preparations for her annual Victorian Christmas. The simplicity of the author's words balances nicely with the photographs, which, in turn, circle back to the artist herself through the included cameo drawings.
