MELBOURNE, FLA.—The books of MacArthur Fellow David Macaulay, whimsical author and illustrator, are now on display at the Florida Institute of Technology Evans Library through the end of the academic year. Macaulay is also a Caldecott Medal award recipient with a background in architecture.
“Macaulay’s books fascinate readers of all ages,” said Dean of Libraries Celine Lang.
All his books are in the exhibit, including The Way Things Work, Cathedral, Ship and Mosque. The exhibit includes background information on how the books came to be and Macaulay’s map of the Kingdom of Bhutan.
Macaulay was born in 1946 in England and moved to New Jersey with his family when he was 11. After graduating from the architecture program at Rhode Island School of Design, he worked as a freelance illustrator and began experimenting with creating his own books.
Also of interest, the art of David Macaulay is now on display at the Foosaner Art Museum in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne.
