Olivia

by Falconer, Ian

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.
