Ferdinand Artwork by Robert Lawson

Beautiful black and white inked drawings that border on being paintings with thick luxurious pen and brush strokes. From time to time I see "updated" colored versions of this book (which has been in print since 1938) but they diminish the grace of the drawings considerably. The story was written by Munro Leaf.
