The ABC of why I wish New York was closer

I have many reasons why I wish New York was closer, and most all of them are art related. Here’s one such example: The New York Public Library’s (free!) exhibition The ABC of it: Why Children’s Books Matter.

Alas, a New York trip is not in the cards for me any time soon, so I’ll have to content myself with the slideshow of photographs on the exhibit designers’ website (Pure+Applied), complete with a shot of a furry wall and Wild Thing doorway, and for the observant child, Humpty Dumpty sitting on a wall. There is also an exhibition brochure available for download from the NYPL website (bottom of the page), complete with a cleverly designed page on banned books.

The exhibition runs until March 23, 2013.
