David Cundy, illustrator of the children’s picture and gift book 'Animals Spell Love', visits Montclair Public Library! The book is a wondrous work of text as art and features word-pictures of animals expressing the word “Love” in 16 languages from around the world, from Czech to Amharic to Korean, and even including American Sign Language.

Gorgeously designed, 'Animals' celebrates kindness and diversity, and the belief that ‘all we need is love.’ Children will also participate in a sketch session with the author. Mr. Cundy is an author, illustrator and graphic artist. He has designed type at Linotype, NY, and with the renowned type designer Matthew Carter in London. His firm, Design Trust, has created graphics for organizations such as the Brooklyn Museum, Columbia University, and Parsons School of Design. David has served on the board of directors of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and has taught in Yale’s graduate graphic design program. Books will be available to purchase courtesy of Watchung Booksellers.
