The first and only scholarly treatment of the life and work of this beloved author and illustrator of children's books, "Tasha Tudor: The Direction of Her Dreams" invites us into the unique world of a unique woman and encourages us to linger. The book is a tribute not only to Tasha Tudor but also to the authors who, obviously, know her work as few of the rest of us do.
A bibliography is not a biography2000/1/13
The authors spent nearly 15 years of their life researching and interviewing Tasha Tudor, her students, associates, and family members. This book was ultimately sanctioned by Tasha Tudor and it is a bibliography and not a biography. Just for the record, a bibliography is "the history, identification, or description of writings or publications." A biography is a "written history of a person's life." The Hare's are to be commended for their tireless efforts in creating the ultimate compendium of the identification of Tasha Tudor's works, writings, and publications. Anyone still confused about the difference between a bibliography and a biography should consult their dictionary for a clarification. An excellent and scholarly work not to be missed by Tasha Tudor aficionados, researchers, or students of her work.
Disapppointed that Tasha Tudor did not sanction.1999/3/19
I was disappointed in the books contents. Although I expected an extensive bibliography (which is very thorough and interesting), I was hoping for a more inclusive book of her life, art, illustrations, etc. I expected a more "colorful" book with more pictures of both her and her work.
