These two pieces are great representations of the fantastic cover style employed by the Dillons in the late 60s and early 70s, which resulted in their numerous commissions for science fiction and fantasy covers as well as their award winning work in children's books. Leo & Diane Dillon received the Hugo Award for Profession Artist in 1971, are the only artists to win the coveted Caldecott Medal two years in a row (1976 and 1977), and were runners up for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1978.
