For those of you in the Los Angeles area, my friend Miss Julie told me about an exhibit at L.A.'s Central Library that I am going to check out soon. It's called "Dancing by the Light of the Moon: The Art of Fred Marcellino", and it includes the covers of record albums, contemporary fiction, and children's books illustrated by Fred Marcellino, and it runs through July 29.
From the press release:
The exhibit features some of Marcellino’s most prominent artwork including book covers for Tom Wolfe’s “The Bonfire of the Vanities” and Milan Kundera’s “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”; album covers for artists such as Loretta Lynn, Manhattan Transfer and Fleetwood Mac; and children’s book illustrations from Charles Perrault’s “Puss in Boots” and Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Steadfast Tin Soldier.”
