Sparkle and Spin by Paul and Ann Rand

I first heard of this book while reading one of Kate Spade's lifestyle books but at the time it was unavailable. Thankfully, Chronicle Books has reissued it and it is just as fresh as it was when it was originally published in 1957. Paul Rand is a foremost graphic designer and is responsible for such recognized logos like UPS and IBM. I always enjoy when "grown-up" artist turn their attention to childrens literature and this is one of my favorite books in a long time. I think it's important to educate all of a child's senses, sight included. Adorable prose acccompanies the fabulous art. A nice gift for an adult art lover also! -Rhiannon
