Edgar Parin d'Aulaire

1898 - 1986

After the publication of Ola in 1932, the work of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire has needed no introduction—their beautiful picture books have delighted countless children ever since.

Ingri Mortenson and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire met in Munich where both were studying art. Ingri had grown up in Norway; Edgar, the son of a noted Italian portrait painter, was born in Switzerland and had lived in Paris and Florence. Shortly after their marriage they moved to this country and began to create the picture books that have established their reputation for unique craftsmanship. Ingri and Edgar work as a team on both art and text. In their early books, effects of color and texture were achieved by the painstaking traditional method of drawing directly on lithograph stone; the same fine results are accomplished today by adapting this process to acetate separations.
