Painted Pig: A Mexican Picture Book
Elizabeth Morrow (au); Rene díHarnoncourt (il); James Griffith (ad)
This delightful picture book, first published in 1930, was written for children, but as a beautiful evocation of an era of awakening American interest in Mexican art and culture it will appeal to adults as well. The author, Elizabeth Morrow, first went to Mexico in 1927, when her husband was appointed American ambassador. The story is about a remarkable painted pig with a savings bank manner and a very stylish rosebud tail. The book was inspired by the wondrous collection of Mexican toys created by the authorís friend Rene díHarnoncourt, who illustrated the book. This facsimile of the first edition includes an Afterword by a folklorist who knew Mrs. Morrow and a Postscript by two of her granddaughters, Margaret Morgan and Reeve Lindbergh.
