BLACKALL, Sophie. Hello, Lighthouse. NY: Little, Brown [2018]. 4to, [40]pp. Color pictorial boards. Color pictorial endpapers; color illustrations on every page, including one fold-out, three-page spread. A fine copy in original color pictorial dust jacket (no medal affixed). Signed by the author/artist, two-time Caldecott Medalist Sophie Blackall, with a small drawing of a whale and her hand-captioned "Hello!" coming from both the Lighthouse above the title and the steamship below it.

First edition. 2019 Caldecott Medalist. A luminous tribute to a steadfast lighthouse and its reassuring light, lovingly told and illustrated by this celebrated, two-time Caldecott Medalist. Blackall's lovely, glowing illustrations were painted in watercolor and Chinese ink on hot-press paper. Please note, this was signed by artist with a drawing in our store and not one of the copies issued by the publisher with a "Signed Copy" sticker. Scarce thus.
