Why We Love This

The Best of Times by Ludwig Bemelmans. New York: Simon Schuster, 1948. First printing. After the devastation of World War II, Bemelmans was commissioned to travel in Europe and write his findings for Holiday magazine. These scattered reports on "the state of the patient", illustrated with 110 drawings and 50 color paintings, have been gathered in this joyous volume. Bemelmans's keen eye and irrepressible spirit shine through in an unusual, oversize collection.
