1 Elleman, Barbara Virginia Lee Burton a Life in Art
Boston, MA Houghton Mifflin 2002 0618003428 / 9780618003426 First Edition Hardcover (Original Cloth) Fine in Fine dust jacket 
This appreciative biography portrays a gifted artist balancing a successful professional career with family responsibilities at a time when most women chose one over the other. Elleman examines Burton's early work and investigates the genesis of each of her seven picture books, from Choo Choo (1937) to the epic, carefully researched Life Story (1962, both Houghton) . She shows how Burton's perfectionism shaped her art, which is characterized by organic movement, rooted in the rhythms of nature, and has survival through change as its constant theme. A generous selection of family photos and full-color art from Burton's published and unpublished work, laid out in a handsome, open page design, accompanies the text. Research notes, an index, and an extensive bibliography are appended. (Margret Chang Library Journal)
