When words and art come together you get the wonderful and creative artists’ books. However, these books go much further than picture books; they really are a piece of art. One such book, The Girl in the Moon by Jessica Spring, brings together words, pictures, texture, and 3D pop outs that tell a story. The first page reads, “That man in the moon is really a girl. Watching earth, she inspires mischief to unfurl.” The story continues to tell of the things that can happen on a full moon night. Come to the Archives & Special Collections to check out more pieces of art!
The Archives & Special Collections is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:00-3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
