I have never read a more charming book on Tibet!!! unpag. 51 S. Eloise Margaret Wilkin, born Eloise Margaret Burns (March 30, 1904 - October 4, 1987), was an award-winning American illustrator, best known as an illustrator of Little Golden Books. Wilkin often illustrated the titles of her sister, children's author Esther Burns Wilkin, who married Eloise's brother-in-law. Many of the picture books she illustrated have become classics of American children's literature. Jane Werner Watson, who edited and wrote hundreds of Golden Books, called Eloise Wilkin "the soul of Little Golden Books",[1] and Wilkin's books remain highly collectible. Her watercolor and colored pencil illustrations are known for their glowing depiction of babies, toddlers, and their parents in idyllic rural and domestic settings.She became a freelance illustrator after graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology and a year later was in New York City, with Joan Esley, another graduate. Maybe that's why Joan's LGB, Play Street looks so much like and Eloise book. Her first day in New York she was given a book contract to illustrate for Century Publishing. Married, Sydney Wilkin, around 1935, they moved to Canandaigua to illustrate and raise a family. Eloise, illustrated her first book with her sister Esther Wilkin (married Sydney's brother), Mrs. Peregrine and the Yak, in 1939. They would collaborate on around 20 books. In 1943, George Duplaix, and editor for Simon & Schuster and one of the key people in the development of Little Golden Books asked her to come to New York and talk about a contract. She told him she couldn't because she hadn't a babysitter. Duplaix, would not take no and Eloise went to New York and signed a contract with the Little Golden Book people to do around four books a year. She illustrated, exclusively for Golden Books from 1943 to 1961. Her last book for Golden was published around the mid 80's. Artikel-Nr. 10557T
