RIP Tasha Tudor

Children’s book illustrator and long time Vermont resident Tasha Tudor passed away this past Wednesday.  She was 92 years old.  Besides her beautiful illustrations Ms. Tudor was a fascinating, if not somewhat eccentric woman, who chose to live in a 19th century lifestyle, shunning electricity and running water, and dressing like a relic from centuries past.  Read her full obituary form the New York Times here.
