In 1949, SPORT magazine published “Lineup for Yesterday,” a collection of poems by Ogden Nash celebrating the greatest big-league baseball players of the 1800s and early 1900s. Using an alphabetical approach, the famous wordsmith paid entertaining tribute to 24 legends of the diamond, encapsulating each in just 4 clever lines. Creative Editions is proud to present this masterpiece to a new generation of fans, reintroducing icons from the formative years of professional baseball. The masterful mixed-media illustrations of C. F. Payne portray these heroes of summer in their athletic primes in this, the first-ever picture book publication of Nash’s classic.
Ogden Nash (1902–1971) was an American poet famed for his unconventional and inventive wordplay. He published more than two dozen books of poetry, and at the time of his death, The New York Times called him “the country’s best-known producer of humorous poetry.”
C. F. Payne is an American artist whose work has appeared in numerous picture books and such periodicals as TIME and Sports Illustrated. He has painted commissioned portraits of many politicians, and his artwork has earned such honors as the 2003 Book Illustration Award.
