Ed Emberley is a Caldecott award-winning children's book illustrator and writer who has been creating original books since the 1960s. He has written and illustrated more than 100 books, including his beloved how-to-draw books for kids. These simple and straightforward books, originally published in the 1970s and 1980s, have encouraged a generation of kids to take the drawing process step by step. Contemporary working artists today often cite Ed Emberley as a beloved early inspiration in their development as artists. By encouraging kids to draw using just a few simple shapes, Emberley has made drawing and creating accessible to everyone.
These three new products celebrate the wonderful, whimsical, and humorous world of Ed Emberley. Released together with AMMO's new ED EMBERLEY monograph by Todd Oldham and Caleb Neelon, The Memory Game, The Dominoes + Matching Game, and the Alphabet Blocks all highlight illustrations from Emberley's wide repertoire of books. These are a great companion to Emberley's classic how-to-draw books and AMMO's rereleased selection of vintage Emberley storybooks.
