Country Road ABC: 02/16/14
Author and artist, Arthur Geiser, took a massive upset in his life and turned it into a gorgeous children's book that celebrates his new home. His book is Country Road ABC and it introduces children (and adults) to Bernard, Iowa, population 98.
Geiser uses etched copper plates to make his own very intricate prints. He then paints them. The amount of details are amazing. Read once to learn the ABCs of farm life (M is milking, Z is for Z clamps). Then read it again to take in the artwork.
If you want to know where Bernard is, check out the spread for the letter X. I'm including the Google Map zoomed in on the town. Get the book out and compare the details. They really are spot on with the satellite image.
