Top of the Shelf: The Duchess of Whimsy

duchess of whimsy

The Duchess of Whimsy by Randall de Sève, illustrated by Peter de Sève In this delectable romantic caper, fabulous mile-high hairdos, extravagant 18th century-style costumes, a bevy of quirky characters, and two ethereal sprites make a visual feast for a fanciful courtship that comes together over a grilled cheese sandwich.  The de Sève's coordinate image and text with ease and brio.
