September 2010: A Visit From London!

Bidding is now open for the Carle Honors Butterfly Auction!

The silent auction is a fundraising initiative by the Carle Honors, hosted by the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and featuring donated original works by twenty-three outstanding picture book artists.

Robert is one of the artists that donated a piece for the auction – it’s a one-of-a-kind piece that has never been duplicated, nor will it ever be! The pop-up and the papers decorating it were all hand made by Robert himself.
