The Life and Career of Abner Graboff

Among modern children’s book illustrators from the ’50s and ’60s, Abner Graboff ranks as one of my personal favorites. Strangely enough, he’s not as well-known as some of his contemporaries, however. Wanting to shed some light on the now deceased man, the indefatigable Ward Jenkins contacted the artist’s son, Jon, and published an insightful interview on his weblog. Here’s part one and part two. Read and be inspired by all the artwork (like the spread from 1961’s I Know An Old Lady, below).

Incidentally, Ward’s first illustrated children’s book has just been published — How to Train with a T. Rex and Win 8 Gold Medals by Michael Phelps and Alan Abrahamson. Congrats to him!
