The NCCIL is the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature, and it is located in beautiful Abilene, Texas. I have to say that there is just no place quite like the NCCIL.
I'd like to even call it Extraordinarily Unique. A true gem right there in big ol' Texas!
Recently, the NCCIL featured Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart in a pop-up exhibition centered around some of their most well known titles. Giant life-size pops from Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland (photo below), Wizard of Oz and Dinosaurs shared space with framed original art. Up on one wall, there was even a four-foot tiger from Jungle Book ready to pounce on any unsuspecting visitors.
This pop was huge, and so much fun to see close-up. Robert shared that their intention for this spread in the book was to create a pop creation that gave the feeling of the cards flowing
through the air - and that is exactly how it comes across - especially when larger than life!
A truly magical time for everyone who attended this event! This exhibition will tour throughout our great country ~ so, click here and see if it is coming to your area ~ !
