Beautiful and bright giclee print of a paper cut created for the Horn Magazine! When I read, I see me was created to reflect that children want to see themselves in the books they read.
I thought about the books I grew up reading and how they impacted my life as a black girl in Virginia. These titles listed are some of the books I read that reflected black people and black culture when I was young.
Why The Sun and Moon Live in the Sky - Elphinstone Dayrell
Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters - John Steptoe
Anansi the Spider - Gerald McDermott
The People Could Fly - Virginia Hamilton
Jambo Means Hello - Muriel Feelings
Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears - Verna Aardema
Corduroy - Don Freeman
Also, a large framed 16 x 20 giclee print will hang at the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC) in Madison, Wi.
These giclee prints are printed on premium Hahnemuhle German etching paper with rich inks that print bold. There are a limited number of prints available, and the only print run.
Each print is signed and numbered.
