Little Baby Turtle



And that's the end of the story.

My family spent some time going through The Archives this weekend. This illustrated story is one item (among many!) that charmed us all.

The heir to Bartheleme (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_fiction). Nice work.

Hey I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago looking for info on Proust and I've been following it ever since, thanks for keeping things interesting!

Michael Leddy said...

Thanks, everybody, for commenting. And RL, thanks for your imagination. I'm glad we saved so much art from way back when.

Love the minimalist bow to illuminated manuscript. I wholeheartedly agree with the commentator -- this is genius.

(And the mommy is so sweet: "My little baby...")

I guess I'm the model for the mommy. I also might have provided the crayons.

Hi J — I'm glad you like capital O. I noticed that too.

Elaine, you're a good mommy (and spouse too).
