This beautiful book was suggested by a colleague. I like the use of color and contrast, and I also love all the little details in each painting.
This is such a cool book about the seasons and color. If you haven't seen it yet, you need to. The details in each illustration in this book are outstanding to say the least. I find it amazing how each color that is the theme of a page is put into the illustration and how the previous colors are worked into the next illustration. The ladies clothes are fantastic too, with details of color and design. The illustrations definitely are a wonderful addition to the story.
I like the folk art feel of the illustrations -- and the fact they clearly depict the little worms after a rain or the dangling red fall leaf that the poetic language describes in a more subtle manner.
