OLE RISOM was one of the most influential publishers of mass-market books for children. He was vice president and art director of Golden Books at Western Publishing from 1952-1972, and then vice president and associate publisher of the juvenile division of Random House from 1972 to 1990. He worked closely with RICHARD SCARRY over the years at both houses.
Generations of children around the world have grown up spending hours poring over books by the late RICHARD SCARRY filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. Scarry began his career at Golden Books in the 1940s, and he remains one of the world's best-loved children's book creators EVER! He was posthumously awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Society of Illustrators in 2012.
