Barbara and Ed Emberley Kindly Tolerate Ecstatic Fan

I got to meet my idols: Barbara and Ed Emberly

Crackerjack children’s book team Barbara and Ed Emberley were so kind to sign copies of favorite wood cut illustrated books PAUL BUNYAN and ONE WIDE RIVER TO CROSS for me at the ribbon cutting for a new mural in Malden. Ed seemed actually honored to see the giant backpack of our collection of their books we brought from home, and he happily perused them to sign his favorites. They also gave me very kind words of encouragement on my own wood cut style illustration children’s book projects. Read more about the mural project at Wonderland. Thanks for the photo, Greg Cook!
