Golden Books Legacy Exhibit

Last week I was with my critique group at a library in Boerne. As I walked out, I noticed a display of illustrations on the wall, which I hadn’t seen before. Turns out the library is hosting the “Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Books.” Who doesn’t remember those Golden Books of years past?

This exhibit, sponsored by The National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature (NCCIL), can be seen at the Patrick Heath Public Library in Boerne through August. I think both illustrators and children’s book writers would be interested in this exhibit. Plan to visit before summer’s over. The art from these books goes all the way back to 1949. Amazing!
