Polka Dot Parade: A Book About Bill Cunningham

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Masha D'yans. "Pictures were his words, fashion his language."

D'yans's vibrant watercolors catwalk across each page, emphasizing the patterns, palettes, and shapes of the clothing that so enamored Cunningham; the man himself is fittingly pictured where he most liked to be: behind the camera. An author's note provides more straightforward biographical information. Bib.
