Taking three graduate classes, keeping up with the coursework, plus ending up in the emergency room with four kidney stones has left me behind in blogging about this adventure. On Sunday, September 11, 2011, I visited the Fairy Tale Art: Illustrations from Children’s Books at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. The exhibit was housed in the handsome Ford Cottage which added to the overall storybook and magical feeling.

The Mad Hatter by Barry Moser (1982)

Illustrators featured included: Kinuko Y. Craft, Demi (Charlotte Dumaresq Hunt), Jane Dyer, Marilee Heyer,
 Trina Schart Hyman, Jim LaMarche, Barry Moser, and Susan Paradis

While I enjoyed all of the works, I was particularly taken with The Rainbabies (1992) by Laura Krauss Melmed which was illustrated by Jim LaMarche (featured in my slideshow). Being a huge fan of woodcuts, I practically drooled when I saw The Mad Hatter by Barry Moser (1982) which was featured in Lewis Carroll’s Alice: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1982).
