Thoughts & things about design, travel, and lettering.

Off to See the Wizard

The Wizard of Oz, brought to you by The Weekly Reader Classics found in my old bookshelf. It's been a while since I've read this book but looking at it with fresh eyes I was amazed by the typography and illustrations.

I believe this is one volume of several produced by The Weekly Reader. Other editions include Black Beauty, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer. The illustrations are by Anthony Rao, but unfortunately I couldn't find any additional information about him. In any case, he seems to have published an impressive variety of bedtime story books. Enjoy!
