Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents note

Correspondence primarily between McElderry, Lenore and Erik Blegvad, Judy Long, and Julia McRae at Hamish Hamilton, which published the book in the UK, regarding this illustrated book of poetry, intended as a companion to the Blegvad's earlier Mittens for Kittens. Topics include contract negotiations, arrangement and illustration of poems, the delay of the original art in customs, interest in translation from South African and Japanese firms, and the accidental lamination of the book's cover. Other work of the Blegvads is also discussed, including Mittens for Kittens, illustrations for Ruth Craft's The Winter Bear, other potential nursery rhyme projects, an exhibition of Lenore's artwork at a London gallery, and a completed but unnamed manuscript written by Lenore.
