Edgar and Ingri D'Aulaire met in Munich, where both were studying art, in the 1920s. Shortly after their marriage they moved to the United States and began to create the picture books that have established their reputation for unique craftsmanship. Their books were known for their vivid lasting color because of the pain-staking process of stone lithography which they used for all their American history biographies. This was an old-world craft of which they were both expert and involved actually tracing their images on large slabs of Bavarian limestone. Throughout their long careers, Ingri and Edgar worked as a team on both art and text. Their research was also thorough and took them all over the United States and Europe as they learned about the men of whom they wrote. The pictures include remarkable detail, and in a way that is appealing to young and old.
