A Exhibit of Children’s books by Wellfleet’s the mid-century community .
Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum
A collaboration between the Cape Cod Modern House Trust
the Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum and the Wellfleet Library
Considering Wellfleet’s size, it’s mid 20th century denizens produced an astounding number of excellent books for kids. These include Juliet Kepes’
Caldecott Award winning Five Little Monkeys, over twenty books illustrated by Ati Gropius- Johansen, many by the pair of Dorothy Sterling and Winnie Lubell, and a host with illustrations by design icons Ivan Chemayeff and Paul Rand. Others creators include Ann Rand-Ozbekhan, Aylette Jenness, Joanna Fabris, Norma Simon and Xavier Gonzalez.
Members of this group studied and taught at the New Bauhaus, Black Mountain Collage, and other schools that had adopted the principles of the Bauhaus. These books for young people show another way these ideas were expressed in a joyful and deceptively simple way.
The exhibit includes many books and original illustrations.
Speaker: Stephen Eskilson, author of Graphic Design: A New History, will give a lecture on these themes at the Wellfleet Library on July 13th.
