9780062203076: The World Is Round

Published to commemorate its 75th anniversary, The World Is Round brings back into print the classic story created by Gertrude Stein and Clement Hurd.

Written in her unique prose style, Gertrude Stein's The World Is Round chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Rose—a whimsical tale that delights in wordplay and sound while exploring the ideas of personal identity and individuality. This stunning volume replicates the original 1939 edition to a T, including all of Clement Hurd's original blue-and-white art printed on the rose-pink paper that Stein insisted upon. Also featured here are two essays that provide an inside view to the making of the book. The first, a foreword by Clement Hurd's son, author and illustrator Thacher Hurd, includes previously unpublished photographs and sheds light on a creative family life in Vermont, where his father and mother, author Edith Thacher Hurd, often collaborated on children's books. The second essay, an afterword by Edith Thacher Hurd, takes readers behind the scenes of the making of The World Is Round, including the numerous letters exchanged between Hurd and Stein as well as images of Stein with the real-life Rose and her white poodle, Love.

About the Author:

Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was born in Pittsburgh to a prosperous German-Jewish family. She was educated in France and the United States, worked under the pioneering psychologist William James, and later studied medicine. With her brother Leo she was an important patron of the arts, acquiring works by many contemporary artists, most famously Picasso, while her home became a popular meeting place for writers and painters from Matisse to Hemingway. Her books include Three Lives, Tender Buttons, and The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.



Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros. Allí fue donde desarrolló su estilo característico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste. Hurd estuvo casado con la escritora Edith Thacher Hurd, con quien también creó muchos libros que se convirtieron en favoritos de los niños.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 75th. Language: English . Brand New Book. The World is Round is Gertrude Stein s only children s book and tells the story of a young girl named Rose who contemplates about who, what, and why she is - often expressing herself through rhyme and song - eventually making a long solo journey up a mountain. As with many of her writings, Stein plays with words and language throughout the book, incorporating her most famous line, Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose, several times in the story. Honoring the graphic beauty of the first publication, this edition is an exact facsimile - just slightly smaller in trim size - and features all of Clement Hurd s stunning blue and white line art printed on the rose pink paper that was so important to Stein. Hurd, best known for his work in Goodnight Moon, was selected by Stein herself from a field of competitors. This edition showcases numerous highlights including: a revealing foreword by Clement Hurd s son, illustrator and author Thacher Hurd; an afterword by Clement Hurd s wife and erstwhile collaborator, Edith Thacher Hurd, which also sheds light on the children s book publishing scene in the 1930s; and images from the Hurd family archives such as Stein in France at the time of the book s writing, the real-life Rose, Clement Hurd at work, as well as with his wife and son, and correspondence between Clement Hurd and Gertrude Stein during their collaboration. Visually breathtaking and eternally modern, this special edition of The World is Round will appeal to new and old readers of this unique children s classic.
