Bernard Waber, who died in May of 2013 at the age of ninety-one, was a born storyteller and nimble, elegant draughtsman with mischief to spare. In the more than two dozen picture books he created between 1961 and 2010, Waber reveled in life’s little surprises while quietly insisting on the importance of friendship and family. A crocodile for a house guest? A lion named Shirley Williamson? Why not! — Waber blithely declares in these droll, worldly-wise entertainments. Our exhibition features 85 original illustrations from the lion’s share of Waber’s classic picture books as well as a sampling of his work as a designer at Time Inc. and Condé Nast.
