The exhibit was to die for if you are a fan of Steig. I felt like I was in the presence of true, guileless genius. The book is a wonderful accompaniment, with chapters written by his family, friends, and critics. The chapters are surprisingly well-written and revelatory. It is thoroughly and richly illustrated. I learned so much and was affirmed in my theories of his artistic inspirations and literary influences.

I knew very little about Bill Steig, but now I feel as though I knew him, and even better, loved him. He had a zest for life that his art reflected honestly. I respect and admire someone who's life is transparent on multiple levels, who does not compromise, and who embraces everything with joy. Makes me love his artwork even more, if that's at all possible.
