Overview

Filmmakers Christine Lundberg and Rawn Fulton explore the life and work of acclaimed author/illustrator Virginia Lee Burton in this documentary profile of the woman behind such beloved children's books as Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little House. A woman whose dynamic sense of design, illustration, typeface, and space made her one of the most successful author/illustrators of the 20th Century, Burton backed up her striking illustrations with richly textured stories about the importance of teamwork, environmental awareness, perseverance, and adapting to change while still recognizing the importance of the past. The wife of renowned sculptor George Demetrious, gifted textiles designer Burton also founded the Folly Cove Designers - a talented collective whose works were sold throughout the United States - in Gloucestor, Massachusetts in 1940.
