Artist: H.A. Rey
REY, H[ans] A[ugustus]. Explore with Books Poster. A 22.5” x 6” poster (ca. 1950) by the creator of Curious George. Upper corners showing two small pin holes, crease where folded in half (as originally distributed), verso of poster slightly discolored with evidence of tape removal at corners, “Explore with books” (the poster’s title) handwritten in ink on verso, else a bright copy. Rare.
A poster created by artist H.A. Rey to celebrate the joy of reading. Featuring a dachshund reminiscent of the titular character from the picture book Pretzel , the image shows a variety of books strewn over the back of the dog. The books have titles which include: “How to Dig a Hole,” “All About Bunnies,” “Birds, Bees and Flowers,” and one titled “Treasure Troves” with an image of a trash can on the cover. A delightfully funny poster – most likely created for one of the Children’s Book Council’s many reading campaigns – by the artist who created Curious George in surprisingly clean, bright condition.
