Children’s Books by Mark Rosenthal

Illustrator Marc Rosenthal stopped by our studio recently. Dave and I had a few moments to visit with him and his wife, designer Eileen Rosenthal, before they headed back home to Massachusetts. Marc is an editorial illustrator who has added children's

book illustration to his repertoire. Marc's work is beautiful, with a retro feel, but very distinctively his own.

A few weeks later, a package arrived in the mail: a signed print, and three of his amazing children's books. Our son has adopted the books as his new favorites, and that's just fine with me. I am happy to look at the illustrations all day long. Our daughter had memorized Archie and the Pirates

by about day three. Now she "reads" it to me. I love the

opening pirate scene.
