At the Zoo. A Book of Block-prints.

Bell, Kendrick (illus.)

Milwaukee, WI: Milwaukee WPA, (c. 1935). Quarto. 14ff. First and presumably only edition. Title-page vignette and eleven brightly colored prints by Kendrick Bell. The accompanying rhyming verse touches upon each animal depicted. The Milwaukee Handicraft Project was an offshoot of the WPA that was founded by a faculty member of the Milwaukee Teachers College, and it provided work to unskilled women on welfare. Between 1935 and 1942, the program grew to become the largest public works project in Milwaukee and was considered enough of a success that it was continued well into the 1940s. Bound in brown cloth with the title-page layout reproduced on the front cover. Some minor wear to cloth and light internal spotting, else nearly fine. Item #25961

Price: $2,650.00
