Virginia Lee Burton a Life in Art, Elleman, Barbara
15 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 A generous selection of family photos and full-color art from Burton's published and unpublished work, laid out in a handsome, open page design, accompanies the text.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)

Doubleday 1997 0385475187 / 9780385475181 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Near fine. Pages; xvi, 1-430. Illustrated. "Feminism, like democracy, is not an easy sell in many parts of the world, especially in traditional societies with autocratic regimes. However, feminism today enjoys an advantage in that it can adapt to local cultural forms and practices; hence the author's concept of Islamic feminism. Here she sets out to answer basic yet sometimes complex questions about Middle Eastern women: their predicament, what feminism means to them, whether its ideas are helpful, and the alternatives in traditional societies. The last chapter is on Muslim women in the United States. Although the author states in conclusion that Islamic feminism seems to her to be alive and well in the countries she visited, gender equality is still a long way off. Highly recommended for all libraries and essential for women's studies collections." Libary Journal review. ; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.50 inches; 448 pages
