but Then I’m Sure You Already Know That

Today at Kirkus, I write about Schwartz & Wade Books’ new I Have a Dream with the exquisite oil paintings of Kadir Nelson.

That link is here.

Until Sunday …

  1. There are no words for what that must have felt like, when Mr. Nelson finished that final picture for this book – wow. It sounds gorgeous, and we do indeed know that Mr. Nelson is BRILLIANT.


  2. I sometimes take Kadir Nelson’s brilliant illustrations for granted. Nelson is one of if not the only artist whose illustrations are grand enough to pull off this book — simply the text of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech. I have seen a mock-up of the book but am still waiting to listen the CD.
