ABOUT ERIC CARLE ART: Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Halloran (who was a worldwide educational consultant on children¿s literature). Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carle¿s. Simple line drawings, such as the one shown in the listing typically sell for $3800 and up unframed, with his more detailed art selling for $25,000 and up. See the Michelson Galleries for additional information on Eric Carle and his art. A wonderful piece in handsome collectible condition [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
