blair lent, r.i.p.

blair lent was the illustrator of tikki tikki tembo, one of my all-time favorite books when i was a kid. i loved it for the text, which i pretty much knew by heart, but the illustrations also stand out so vividly in my memory, especially the surrounding kites and flowers and the kind of dark wash of the background colors. he was 80 and lived in cambridge, mass.
