As an artist & children's book collector, I've always had a special love for children's book illustrators. Margaret was known for having championed the illustrators she worked with, working closely with them, spending time with them and for a few becoming close friends. This is a sellected group of illustrators of MWB's books.

ELEANOR DART

I couldn't find anything online or in any of my Children's Book Illustrators Research books about Eleanor Dart. I know she illustrated for Golden Books and Wonder Books. Some of her titles were;

Baby's First Christmas, Children's Prayer Book, Cowboy Bill, How to tell time, A little Cowboys Christmas and The Girl Scout Handbook for 1956.

I will continue to do research. I wouldlike to know when she lived.

AARON FINE

I have found very little about Mr Fine. It looks as if he was a prolific illustrator of Travel posters and got a contract with Pan Am as well as a few other children's books.

He was a friend of Andy Warhol, and that he died of cancer in 1962.

8 more images from this series here.
Art Seiden was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1923. He received a BA at Queens College and studied for eight years (!) at the Art Students League. Mario Cooper was among his instructors. Upon entering the illustration field he did corporate and advertising work for some of the largest companies in America: Phillip Morris, Hoffmann-LaRoche, General Motors and Hearst Publications were some of his clients.

But his distincive style and best and longest association would have to be in the realm of children's book illustration, where he cut his teeth illustrating "Three Mice and a Rat" by Margaret Wise Brown and Jean H. Berg in 1950. Seiden illustrated over 300 books and was both author and artist of at least 22 children's books for virtually every major publisher in America beginning rather appropriately with "My ABC Book" for Wonder Books in 1953. Seiden spent the following decades working with an alphabet of authors and coming back around to Margaret Wise Brown with one final book, "The Train to Timbuctoo" for Golden Books in 1999. 

Seiden worked mainly in transparent watercolours and gouache and is a member of the American Watercolour Society and The Society of Illustrators, among others. His work is represented by the Kendra Krienke Gallery in New York City and he lived in Woodmere, NY.
