About Esther Averill

See more books from this Author
Esther Averill (1902-1992) began her career as a storyteller drawing cartoons for her local newspaper. After graduating from Vassar College in 1923, she moved first to New York City and then to Paris, where she founded her own publishing company. The Domino Press introduced American readers to artists from all over the world, including Feodor Rojankovsky, who later won a Caldecott Award. In 1941, Esther Averill returned to the United States and found a job in the New York Public Library while continuing her work as a publisher. She wrote her first book about the red-scarfed, mild-mannered cat Jenny Linsky in 1944, modeling its heroine on her own shy cat. Esther Averill would eventually write twelve more tales about Miss Linsky and her friends (including the I Can Read Book, "The Fire Cat"), each of which was eagerly awaited by children all over the United States (and their parents, too).
Published January 1, 1969 by Funk & Wagnalls.

Lastly--but of prime importance to anyone concerned with Callot's stature as a printmaker--the reproductions are literally a matter of black against white (or rather ivory), and the better he gets, the poorer they become.
