The late Louis Slobodkin was a bit of a Renaissance man, wearing the hats of sculptor, author and illustrator. Before I came across this site, which takes a pretty comprehensive look at his life and career, I was—unfortunately for me—unfamiliar with his work. Below are a few children’s book covers I happen to like, but there is quite a bit to see in the archives, so make sure to take a look for yourself.
