Peter Selgin and Daniela Tordi


Self-protratit by Peter Selgin

Recently I received a copy of Lo Scrittore e l'Oca  (The Writer and the Goose), a picture book based on the true story of writer and artist Peter Selgin* and his noisy pet goose.

Illustrator and author, Daniela Tordi depicts Selgin's life using vibrant color outlined in black. I love that she has included Selgin's paintings of ships (for Peter Selgin has painted many ocean liners. See his Titanic link). The book is illustrated with a childlike directness that is both simple and detailed.
