About This Item

New York: Atheneum, 2000 Illustrated boards with a few small indentations to front cover; matching dust jacket with small indentations on front panel (corresponding to dents in cover) Illustrated on every page using a limited color palette depicting everyone's favorite piglet. Rambunctious, intelligent and downright charming. . First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illus. by Ian Falconer. 4to.


Published in 2000 by Atheneum, New York,  Olivia  was written and illustrated by Ian Falconer. Along with being an author and illustrator, Falconer is also a costume and set designer for theatre, and he has created over 30 covers for The New Yorker magazine. In the Olivia series, which to-date includes twelve books, Falconer uses a limited color palette of black and white, with occasional splashes of red. His otherwise simple renderings sometimes include the work of famous artists like Degas and Pollock within the story. This minimalist style is reflected in the original  Olivia  cover, which depicts only the title and main character, not even including the author’s name.
