Tall City, Wide Country invites young readers to pack their
bags for a journey from a rural environment to an urban
landscape. Enjoy panoramic illustrations of broad cows,
expansive sunshine, and seemingly endless horizons … then
turn the book sideways and do some big-city sightseeing,
taking in vertical parades, towering skyscrapers, and highrising
elevators. Light on words but big on charm, this
unique picture book is a trip worth taking!
American illustrator Seymour Chwast developed his
talent for drawing from an early age. In the 1950s,
he cofounded Push Pin Studios, and he remains the
organization’s director today. In 1985, he was honored
with a Gold Medal from the American Institute of
Graphic Arts (AIGA). His work is showcased in New
York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, and other museums worldwide.
