Jaenet Guggenheim plunged with great fervor into this marvelous project. She spent whole days and months with the artists, fabricators, and paleontologists photographing and recording their instructive comments, which are woven into the text of this book. You will hear their voices clearly throughout the chapters. What you hear may surprise you! This book also features two special sections: one pertaining to the many opportunities that artists can find working with a museum, and a glossary.

Available now at Collected Works or Amazon.

Grow Grow Grow

Grow Grow Grow

This is the story of a wonderful sunflower.

Grow Grow Grow is a picture book for young children brilliantly illustrated by Jaenet Guggenheim. She has illuminated the text with paper-collage images from her collection of art papers from all over the world.

Through the seasons of a single year, the lovely story-poem by Barbara Riley follows a growing sunflower seed as it meets the world of caterpillars, dogs, and weather with the determination to grow.


The Butterfly Book #3

The Fussy Little Butterfly Gusts To The Café

Jaenet left us four butterfly stories but only two were illustrated. Therefore, we asked noted American artist/pop up book designer/musician and good friend Sally Blakemore to illustrate the third story in the series, The Fussy Butterfly Gusts To The Café.
