LITERATURE

Judith K. Reed reviewed the book for The Art Digest on 11/15/45….."In lush flowing color and sweeping line, Corbino has set the mood of Swift’s fierce, furious fantasy. The illustrations, even the smallest are imaginative and strong as the text, reaching from the lyric tenderness even Swift admitted to the angry satire more often encountered. And since illustrated books often do much in widening general art appreciation, the volume has a second value in serving as an admirable general introduction to the work of one of America’s outstanding artists."
