The Steig Album

by William Steig

Condition: Very good

New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1953. First Edition. Pictorial boards. Very good. William Steig. A very good first edition compiling Steig's work up to 1953. Yellow pictorial boards. Binding is sturdy and square. Toning to first free endpaper. Gift inscription dated 1953 (NOT by Steig). Signatures to many of the cartoon illustrations from unknown persons. 318 pp. Quarto, 8 x 11 inches tall. Early work from the Creator of Shrek, the lovable ogre. This is an interesting copy, as it is full of signatures o various people---I've spot checked a few of them on Google, but can't figure out if they were friends and colleagues of Steig or just random people of significance to the previous owner. "William Steig was an American cartoonist, sculptor, and, in his later life, an illustrator and writer of children's books. Best known for the picture books Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, Abel's Island, and Doctor De Soto, he was also the creator of Shrek!, which inspired the film series of the same name" ---wikpedia

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
