Lehman, Barbara

Barbara Lehman mostly makes children’s picture books that have no text! Just pictures. That means the readers can create with their own words from the images. Her illustrations have been included in exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago and the Central Children’s Room of the New York Public Library. She has shared her book work with children at the Whitney Museum of American Art and at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. THE RED BOOK was awarded a Caldecott Honor. She attended Pratt Institute, and now is based in Albany NY. www.barbaralehmanbooks.com
