PIG PIG RIDES

By McPHAIL, DAVID

McPHAIL, DAVID. McPHAIL,DAVID. PIG PIG RIDES. Offered here are 6 FABULOUS WATERCOLORS used for McPhail's wonderful picture book published by Dutton that features an adorable character named Pig Pig. Two pieces are large measuring 20" wide x 15" high. The other four are 11 x 11", 10 x 11", 9 x 11" and 5 x 11". All depict a glorious humanized Pig Pig. McPhail was born in Newburyport, Mass.. He has illustrated the work of others, notably Nancy Willard's Sailing To Cythera which was one of AIGA's 50 Books of the Year in 1974, and he has authored and illustrated a profusion of books on his own. His Captain Toad and the Motorbike was likewise included in AIGA's 1979 show of 50 Best Books. McPhail belongs to the new breed of children's book illustrators, along with James Marshall, Trina Schart Hyman and others - who bring a fresh originality to children's literature. McPhail's style ranges broadly from intricate detail reminiscent of Sendak's and E.H. Shepard's line illustrations to the broad strokes of William Steig. See Hornbook Illustrators of Children's Books vol. 4 p. 4-5, 143.
