Alice and Martin Provensen

In 1984, Alice and Martin Provensen won the Caldecott Medal for their book, The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Blériot, July 25, 1909. Below are a few examples of their work from other books. The two on top are from The Golden Treasury of Myths and Legends, the one on the bottom left is from The Provensen Book of Fairy Tales, and the one next to that is from an edition of the New Testament that they illustrated.

I love the Provensens and wanted to share a few of their pictures, but since I think they speak for themselves I don't have much to add.* Maybe just "feast your eyes!"

*Okay, okay, you can read a little bit about them here.
