    4 2014 From Poetry to Song to Picture Book The album Leave Your Sleep which Merchant spent five years researching and writing originated from a collection of poems from such notable poets as E E Cummings Ogden Nash and Edward Lear that come alive through an eclectic blend of styles from folk to jazz to R B to Celtic influence Poetry on the page can be difficult to penetrate sometimes it needs to be heard I used music to enter these poems and once inside I was able to understand how they were constructed with layers of feeling and meaning said Merchant Two years later Leave Your Sleep was again reimagined this time as a picture book illustrated by Barbara McClintock and published by Frances Foster Books Macmillan Children s Publishing Group A prolific children s book author and illustrator McClintock captures the spirit of both the original poems and Merchant s songwriting in rich ink and watercolor drawings The book includes a copy of select songs from Merchant s album The collection is as Merchant puts it a parade of witches and fearless girls blind men and elephants giants and sailors and gypsies dancing bears circus ponies a Chinese princess and a janitor s boy My hope is that this collaborative book of poems pictures and music will provide many enchanted hours to children eager for beauty and the sort of adventure that happens between the pages of a book and the words of a song About the Exhibition The exhibition in the Carle s Central Gallery focuses on McClintock s artwork for Leave Your Sleep from early sketches to finished pieces There will be a lot of Barbara s preliminary work in the exhibition to reinforce the extensive work and creative process that goes into a collaboration like this said Chief Curator Nick Clark The exhibition will also include some of Merchant s drawings which she produced in anticipation of making the book The comparison provides a nice opportunity to see how two artists approach the same idea in very different ways About the Museum The mission of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art a non profit organization in Amherst MA is to inspire a love of art and reading through picture books The only full scale museum of its kind in the United States The Carle collects preserves presents and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world In addition to underscoring the cultural historical and artistic significance of picture books and their art form The Carle offers educational programs that provide a foundation for arts integration and literacy Eric and Barbara Carle founded the Museum in November 2002 Eric Carle is the renowned author and illustrator of more than 70 books including the 1969 classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar Since opening the 40 000 square foot facility has served more than half a million visitors including 30 000 schoolchildren Its extensive resources include a collection of more than 10 000 picture
