We're excited to announce new products for Spring!...

Our first is Inspirations from Nature, featuring the Illustrations of Ernst Haeckel. For the more romantically inclined, we also have Fantastic Women, featuring the Illustrations of Don Blanding.
Bring beauty to your life with our Butterfly Box. The latest addition to our large selection of sticker sets features a beautiful selection of Victorian-era butterflies.
A new shape book is always a treat, but we think that Our Friends the Bugs is an especially beautiful addition to ever-expanding collection of these sure-to-please titles.
We also have a delightful selection of new Greeting Cards in several popular categories, including Congratulations, Graduation, Friendship, Anniversary & Wedding.

We welcome the spring with this wonderfully original shape book, inspired by a 1930s publication. Each two-page spread celebrates a different insect, accompanied by a light-hearted and informative rhyme. The illustrations and overall design of the book are lovely and unusual, using bold color and interesting graphic elements that stand in stark contrast to the delicate creatures they depict. The overall design truly helps the reader feel close to the tiny reality of the various insects. This book is an excellent antidote to the all-too-common aversion to bugs and truly helps us see them as friends.

Laughing Elephant is celebrating Women's History Month, too. Women have been very important in the history of illustration, especially for children. Children's books are our speciality, and here are a few of our favorite pictures painted by the American women illustrators, Jessie Willcox Smith, Bessie Pease Gutmann, Katherine Wireman, Sarah Stilwell Weber, Maginel Wright Enright (Frank Lloyd Wright's sister) and Grace Drayton.
We publish several other products featuring illustrations by the great Jessie Willcox Smith. Her genius in portraying women and children is clearly manifested in these paintings. She was a student of the pioneer American illustrator, Howard Pyle in the days when a career as an illustrator was very unusual for a woman.

British women artists, beginning in the late 19th century when color printing for children's books became practical, took to the field of illustration with enthusiasm. The first major woman illustrator was Kate Greenaway. Her popularity undoubtedly inspired other women to follow, and the early 20th century abounded with superb illustrations by women. We publish images by a number of wonderful British women, including Beatrix Potter, Honor Appleton, Mabel Lucie Attwell, Margaret Tarrant, Marie Angel and Millicent Sowerby.
