A vintage treasure brought back to life by Flying Eye Books, I Like Animals by Dahlov Ipcar was originally published 1960. This book reads as an enticing inventory with rhythmic and adventurous language, a relish of patterns and an enthusiasm for zoos.
Dahlov Ipcar is an American illustrator whose love of animals and nature, and in particular jungle animals, has entertained children the world over with her vivid and fanciful illustrations. Flying Eye founder Sam Arthur finds Ipcar's images “incredibly contemporary”. Flying Eye Books has worked to faithfully restore and reproduce the quality of the original art. Using modern techniques, their restorers have painstakingly picked out the layers of spot colour and remastered each brush stroke while keeping the integrity of the line.
