Editorial Reviews

Review

"Emberley is a chameleonic artist. His work encompasses both the simple doodlesque renderings that characterize his how-to-draw franchise, and more difficult techniques, like woodcuts, which he make appear effortless. That versatility is on display in Ed Emberley, which [Todd] Oldham calls 'a whistle stop through Ed’s 60-plus years as a creator.'" ―The Atlantic

"... The new art tome by star designer Todd Oldham and artist and art historian Caleb Neelon that offers a monumental, lushly illustrated retrospective of the first half of Emberley’s career." ―The Artery

"In his fun and thorough introduction, [Caleb] Neelon talks to a collection of artists whose impressionable young minds felt a big Emberley imprint, including Mel Kadel, Josh Keyes, and Souther Salazar, and the intergenerational dialogue becomes loud and clear. Like all the best children's books, 'Ed Emberley' does not skimp on the pictures, and the incredible range of style, subjects and technique is showcased beautifully. Emberley's influence is unstoppable, and luckily, this book will be around for future generations. It's a book that had to be made." ―Juxtapoz

"Todd Oldham and Caleb Neelon, obviously big fans of Emberley’s work, have created this beautiful homage to the man and his work. This large, coffee-table-type of book is filled with wonderful examples of Emberley’s charming illustrations, from many of his over one hundred published books. In addition to the astonishing number of art examples, there is a well-written biography, accompanied by a good collection of photographs from throughout his life. This book is a real treat for anyone who loves picture book art." ―San Francisco Book Review

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Robert J. Keil on December 10, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This Ed Emberley monograph is a great tribute to a talented artist, as well as a trip back in time to my childhood. I eventually grew up to be an art director and book author myself, and I owe some of that to the beautiful books Ed Emberley did in the 1960s and 1970s. It's so nice to be able to see a wider range of his work, collected for the first time in this book, as well as re-visiting some classics I had forgotten about. Emberley's work shows a sureness of line and a colorful geometric language that is sometimes simple, sometimes intricate, but always enjoyable. The book is nicely produced, and although some images were scanned from printed sources, the quality holds up pretty well. The text is very insightful and makes one feel as if they are visiting the Emberley home studio, which seems by all counts to be a magical and cozy place to be.

I am really happy with the quality of this book. It's a nice size and has so many wonderful illustrations by Ed Emberley. The forward has tons of great information on Emberley's background and family life. The illustrations run the gamut of his career and are nicely varied. This is another wonderful collaboration with Ammo/Todd Oldham to add to your collection!
