Daisy Mrázková / Songs of the Ant-Nanny

Luminous, delicate verses for children: this book, written in the 1960s, remained for decades in the author’s bottom drawer. The later drawings are amazingly close to the earlier spirit. In honour of the author of Flora the Bear and The Ant and the Elephant: unique picture books, which came together in the 1980s. The book received the Hollar Prize.
