Artists’ Book Cornucopia Pick #16 – Ziegler

Goldy Locks and the Three Ws: The First of Six Mixed-Up Fairy TalesCaroline Garcia Ziegler

ABC11 Caroline_Ziegler_GoldyLocks_1This book, with its use of wood and handset lead type, hand-colored lino-cuts, has a simple premise – the mixing up of fairy tales in the creation of a new story. I haven’t had a chance to sit and enjoy this book as much as I want to but have been watching gallery visitors become more engaged and amused with the turn of every page.

The story begins “Once Upon a Time, there was a small family: a Big Bad Wolf, A Younger Wicked Step-Sister, and their child, Wolf.” . . .
