I make no bones about it: if I had to pick a favorite illustrator from the later 20th century, Trina Schart Hyman would be at the top of my list. Hyman and Rogasky collaborated on a number of books, among them Rapunzel, the classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm. This first edition, Fine in an About Fine dust jacket, is made extra special by having the signatures of both the author and illustrator on the front endpaper, dated the year of publication.
