Notes: Jeannie Baker was born in England (2 November 1950) and attended art college at Brighton Polytechnic before making her home in Australia in 1975 and becoming a children's picture book author and artist. Baker uses a variety of textures in her works. "When I can, I like to use textures from the actual materials portrayed, such as bark, feathers, cracked paint, earth, knitted wool and rusty tin... so that their natural textures become an integral part of the work." Baker's collages illustrate her picture books, but also stand individually as works of art. They are part of many public art collections and have been exhibited in galleries in London, New York and throughout Australia.
"The artwork was prepared as collage constructions, which were reproduced in full color from photographs by David Cummings."--Title page verso.

Abstract:

Chronicles the events and changes in a young boy's life and in his environment, from babyhood to grownup, through wordless scenes observed from the window of his room.

"The effect human beings have on the landscape around them is the theme of Baker's most recent tour de force....The artist's multimedia collage constructions are, as ever, fascinating in their realistic detail and powerfully convey the dramatic message.."--Horn Book.
