I Like Old Clothes by Mary Ann Hoberman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Barton's mixed media sketches are delightful. The pastels are and browns give the entire book a vintage feel and Hoberman's text of the story offers a love story to used clothes. Thrift-store lovers and dresser-uppers will enjoy the story. All the illustrations are layered and textured and patterned. To some it may feel hodge-podgish, but to me they seem to work well to create eclectic and cozy imagery. After reading this, I want to find some old clothes and see what I can make...
