Tasha and Her Babies by Nell Dorr
Tasha Tudor captivated many people during her long life (1915-2008). She illustrated children's books of her own creation as well as such classics as Mother Goose, The Secret Garden and Fairy Tales from Hans Christian Andersen. She toured the country speaking about her books, her art and her lifestyle. She was loved for her knowledge of flowers: she knew how to grow them, she created realistic paintings of flowers. They appear in nearly all her books. Examine her art and you will discover a world of images of children, dolls, and Christmas. These are nearly all in New England settings. Wander through our web store to see images of her books, Christmas cards, paper dolls, and many fine art prints. We have original art, too. As Tasha was fond of saying... Take Joy!
