Beautiful. I especially like how he hasn't cutesy-fied the silkworm.
Your post made me remember Maud and Miska Petersham's book The Story Book of Silk. There's a cover image here:http://www.illusproj.pagebooks.net/petershamstoryofsilk.jpgThey did a whole series of similar titles, although the only other one I've seen is The Story Book of Wool. Full-color throughout. Maybe I'll post some images if I get a chance.
good reading your interview at ephemera. you have the best blog on internet - a constant inspiration. thanks
Cy, I didn't scan the "transformation" stage when the silkworm is basically dreaming in abstract shapes. Pretty damn cool.Chris, I'll check out that series. Thanks. Joel, I saw your interview there too. Thanks for the kind words in your interview and here!
