Collins, 1975, Hardcover (Printed Boards), Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First Edition
'The Fair' is a picture book based on Brueghel's great painting. Pieter Brueghel's painting of a village fair is alive with fascinating detail. Within the big picture dozens of small pictures can be found, lost and found again and each small picture is a painting in itself, carefully depicted and beautifully composed. Ruth Craft has made her own interpretation of some of these small pictures in a lively text which she hopes will encourage readers to look further into the picture and perhaps make up their own stories about it. 32 pages.
