I've confessed before to being an accidental collector of Noah's Ark themed picture books. They say if you have three items you are a collector. My Amazon Wish List has had this Noah's Ark version (by Heinz Janisch illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger) it for some time and when thrifting Friday I found a like new copy for less than three dollars.
Her people are not dressed any way typical of what weary usually think of as "Biblical". They are almost contemporary but tall mens' hats and lots of long coats tweak the image and make me feel the people are from a timeless place.
I love how she plays with size and perspective. This is the picture that illustrates the wickedness of the people.
I loved the small picture of people trying to escape the flood (Yes I know it's sad).
