I have been sworn to secrecy concerning specifics, but I felt the need to share the excitement a little – forgive the fawning. A handful of my fellow booksellers and I had the distinct honor and privilege of visiting with Caldecott Medal-winning author/illustrator/artist and great friend of Warwick’s, Brian Selznick in his La Jolla home last night, where Brian treated us to a sneak peek at his next book. For those not familiar with Brian’s artwork, go immediately to theinventionofhugocabret.com. The work he has been producing for his next project is simply jaw-dropping – I can’t tell you anything about it (at all, really) except that it is ambitious, beautiful, meticulous, and destined to launch Brian into the extraordinary, distinguished group of multiple Caldecott winners. Bravo!
