Summary:Ever since (and well before) Godine published her first book, A
Farmer's Alphabet in 1981, Mary Azarian has been hard at work cutting
soft pine in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Last year she was
awarded what she richly deserves: the Caldecott Medal. This
retrospective volume is not intended to illustrate a particular
story, but to display the full range of her abilities, and it is
arranged (as seems logical to us) according to the seasons she
celebrates in her art. In all, we have reproduced fifty of her
hand-colored woodcuts in full color and an equal number in black and
white. The book is large format because that is the way she works and
that's what does her work justice. The text, written by her friend
Lilias Hart, discusses not only her work, but also what life is like
in the rigorous reaches of Northern Vermont.It would be unfortunate
if Mary's acheivement was relegated to the realm of "illustration."
She is not an "illustrator" but an artist who works in wood, in a
technique that has been all but forgotten by modern practitioners.
She does it as well as anyone of her generation, and this ambitious,
oversize book will show the full amplitude and genius of her work.
