John Schoenherr: Rest in Peace


I just read that John Schoenherr has died. He was a fabulous illustrator--he won the Caldecott for the wonderful Owl Moon, and also did a lot of covers for Analog, my husband's favorite science fiction magazine. And he gave me permission to use this ethereally beautiful scratchboard illustration from Rascal on my blog. The world is a little darker for me today.

  1. Owl Moon is one of my favorite books both for its words and illustrations. I've shared it with students, both children and adults. The illustration you show is lovely,too. Thank you for posting the tribute to a wonderful artist.
