The Duchess of Whimsey is all that her name suggests. The Earl of Norm seems…well, completely ordinary. This lively exhibition features original artwork created by illustrator Peter de Sève (The New Yorker, Ice Age) for his first children’s book, created with his wife/author Randall de Sève (Toy Boat). The Duchess of Whimsy spins a tender tale of two royals who discover each other over a grilled cheese sandwich, and defy expectations by proving that people are often more than they seem.
