visions of you

I'm Mal. I like making things out of paper and reading what others have put on paper.

Richard Scarry fans (and you know who we … I mean YOU are) rejoice! The artist’s son Huck is publishing a previously undiscovered volume called Best Lowly Worm Book Ever!

 He tells NPR’s Scott Simon that he found the manuscript for Best Lowly Worm Book Ever! in his father’s Swiss chalet.

"I looked here and I looked there, and underneath my father’s desk I indeed found a rather dusty gray portfolio," he says. "And in there, there were a lot of sketches on tracing paper. So it was basically all sketched out and the text had been written — it was done with my father’s typewriter and taped down onto the pages. But he never got around to doing the final art and so that’s what I did."

Read the rest of the story (and find out why it’s okay that Lowly can kick a ball despite having — or being — only one leg) here.

At that moment I was sure. That I belonged in my skin. That my organs were mine and my eyes were mine and my ears, which could only hear the silence of this night and my faint breathing, were mine, and I loved them and what they could do.

JK Rowling's bestselling boy wizard is due for a makeover, with the launch of award-winning illustrator Jim Kay's fully-illustrated edition of Harry Potter in 2015.

The first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is slated for publication in September 2015, and publisher Bloomsbury will release each of the subsequent titles annually, re-creating the original publishing schedule which started in London in 1997, and so successfully developed readers as they, and Harry and friends, grew older together.

Illustrator Kay has reimagined Harry for a new generation of readers, in a style that nods to Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of the boy wizard in the film versions of the novels, and captures the character of Harry in the books.”
