Kai og Anne i den store By

Kai og Anne i den Store By [Kai and Anne in the Big City], by Otto Gelsted. Copenhagen, Levin & Munksgaards, 1933. The text, by Danish poet Otto Gelsted, follows Kai and Anne as they visit a factory and admire the giant gears and wheels, take an airplane ride, and go to the circus, among other activities. The rhymes are illustrated by Karen Lis-Jacobsen, with eight full-page plates in bold colors. The color illustrations, from cut-paper collages, use simplified shapes to create characters and scenery and are reminiscent of constructivist art.
