Why We Love This

The World of Bemelmans. by Ludwig Bemelmans. New York: Viking Press, 1955. First edition thus. This is an omnibus edition of Bemelmans' first four books, plus assorted stories. Illustrated throughout with his charming drawings, this is a fascinating look at Europe and the US in the years surrounding the disaster of the Second World War. Bemelmans plays the innocent throughout and his wonder at the beauty of the world counters the crazy people in it.
