This is a tribute to a Lithuanian illustrator Kestutis Kasparavicius. I want to share some pictures of his old and new books that I have. His books are translated into 22 languages, so you may even find them in your local bookstore. His illustrations are real visual treats.
New Year (1987)
I remember reading this as a kid and marveling at the surreal illustrations: a giant snowman, a moose with paint brushes in its antlers, Santa Claus riding a bear... It left a long lasting impression. I discovered this book again just recently and it was amazing to see these illustrations once again and to compare them with my own memories of this book.
