Hooray! At last!

Henri’s Walk to Paris, originally published in 1962, was just rereleased and it’s a must have for any kid’s library. The story about a young boy who sets to walk the big city of Paris and the adventures he has along the way. While the story is charming, the illustrations are the real treat. They’re by famous graphic designer Saul Bass, who is well known for his opening credits sequences in classic movies, like Ocean’s 11 and West Side Story. (The credits for Mad Men are also an homage to Bass.) You can order the book through Amazon, and take a peek at some of the illustrations after the jump!
