Every child loves animals. At some point, all of us have wished for our own zoo filled with beasts and birds; a pet shop with cats, dogs and fish in every shape and colour; a cabin in the woods to spy on brown bears and wild wolves, and a ranch with mustangs to race across the plains! Here’s a book for every animal lover.
Dahlov Ipcar is an American author, artist and illustrator whose career has spanned five decades. Over the years she has produced over 30 beautiful children’s books, has won a selection of awards (including the NEIBA President’s Award) and has her works exhibited in museums across the US.
I Like Animals was first printed in 1960 by Alred A. Knopf using a hand-picked colour palette and traditional printing techniques. As Dahlov’s original lithographic plates were lost many years ago, Flying Eye Books has worked to faithfully restore and reproduce the quality of the original art. Using modern techniques, our restorers have painstakingly picked out the layers of spot colour and remastered each brush stroke while keeping the integrity of the line.
