Fans of illustrator Dahlov Ipcar will be pleased to see that Islandport Press has recently published her newest book, Dahlov Ipcar’s Farmyard Alphabet. In this new board book, Ipcar pairs charming depictions of farm life with a gentle rhyming text to take you from A to Z. Illustrations selected from her forty year career give the book a classic vintage feel. Islandport Press has also recently reissued many of the most beloved Ipcar books. The Calico Jungle, Hardscrabble Harvest, Cat in the Night, My Wonderful Christmas Tree and The Little Fisherman are all back in print.
Ipcar, 93, has published over thirty children’s books in her long career and her artwork is in the permanent collections of several national museums and adorns the walls of public buildings. Last year, she was honored with the prestigious President’s Award from the New England Independent Booksellers Association. She joins Robert McCloskey as the only other children’s book author/illustrator to have received this award.
