Celestino Piatti's Animal ABC

Piatti, author of The Happy Owls, brings his trademark style of glowing colors and bold lines—aptly compared to stained glass—to this alphabet of animals. Playful rhyming text offers interesting thoughts about each creature, real or fabled.

Celestino Piatti (1922-2007) was a Swiss graphic artist, painter and book designer. He was a popular illustrator of children’s books and achieved international success as a designer for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (DTV).
