Odd Number

Some sample spreads from another favorite children's book – this one by the playwright Eugène Ionesco, with illustrations by Etienne Delessert. The text is funny and the illustrations are outstanding (as with all of Delessert's work – in 1975 he was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the Louvre, which went on to travel to museums around the world). Click to enlarge:

More Delessert and Ionesco in future posts. In the meantime, snap this one up at Abe Books.
