Happy Spring! Baseman’s cover for NYT for Kids
Did you get your copy of The New York Times this past Sunday, March 26?
Gary Baseman’s spring bunny was featured on the cover of the most recent Kids sections for The New York Times.
A seasonal offering by the world’s best-known newspaper with the Editor’s Note: “This section should not be ready by grown-ups”, it is exclusively written for youth to encourage them to think about what’s going on around the world and in their own lives. In the March 26th issue, articles address the pandemic, spy balloons, and an inside look at the Peeps factory.
Did you know that Baseman’s early break into illustration happened with The New York Times? In 1986, Baseman was commissioned to do the cover and all the spot illustrations for the The New York Times Book Review.
