The Wonderful Egg

by Dahlov Ipcar

Long, long ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth, one wonderful egg sat all alone in a blue-green mossy nest at the base of a giant fern tree. But whose egg was it? And where did it come from?

Dahlov Ipcar is an American author, artist and illustrator whose career has spanned five decades. Over the years she has produced over 30 beautiful children’s books, has won a selection of awards and has her works exhibited in museums across the US.

The Wonderful Egg takes us back to a prehistoric world, teeming with creatures that soar, swim and thunder through the green jungle world. It was first printed in 1958 using a hand-picked colour palette and traditional printing techniques.

As Dahlov’s original lithographic plates were lost many years ago, Flying Eye Books has worked to faithfully restore and reproduce the quality of the original art -- brought back for a new generation of children.
