Tasha Tudor: Around the Year illuminates the changing seasons and special celebrations with outstanding, rarely seen examples of this beloved author and illustrator’s original art for children’s books and greeting cards highlighting holidays beginning with New Year’s………Christmas, her favorite.
Original portraits of Tasha Tudor by her mother, Rosamond Tudor, evocative watercolors, delicate childhood drawings, original handwritten manuscripts, miniature doll cards, hand-decorated boxes and Easter eggs, personal photographs, and one hundred first-issue holiday cards dating from the early 1940s onward are among the heartwarming treasures to be enjoyed.
Spanning seven decades, Tasha Tudor’s heartwarming images remind us of the simple pleasures that can be had by savoring each passing season and cherishing the special moments which weave into the fabric of our lives.
