In a beautiful, insightful book, Under the North Light, The Life and Work of Maud and Miska Petersham (Woodstock Arts) born of personal experience and skillful research, Lawrence Webster has written the first comprehensive examination of a remarkable pair of artists and the stories and illustrations they created for children during a 40-year career. Since their marriage in 1917, when Maud and Miska Petersham weren’t traveling the world collecting authentic costumes and toys to be translated into pictures, much of their lives were spent facing each other at drawing boards placed next to the north-facing window in their Woodstock home.
