This comprehensive study of the composition of the first Babar book by each of its two authors—father and son Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff—is complete with over two hundred color photographs of manuscript drafts and drawings, transcriptions of all preliminary and final French text along with English translations, and two illustrated essays that provide the cultural context of one of the most successful children's series of all time. The Brunhoffs’ earliest drafts, shown here in juxtaposition with their finished watercolors, allow us to track the changes, both subtle and substantive, that both men made as they refined their work, bringing together word and image with both elegance and exuberance.
