Rhymes with Doré, Flagg and Zorn


Rhymes with Doré, Flagg and Zorn
(2022, 160 pages, $19.95, 6 inches wide by 8.75 inches tall)

If you’re going to write short, humorous poems to accompany 150 or so artworks, you should begin with the best. Gustave Doré was a popular and prolific French artist in the nineteenth century. Anders Zorn was an internationally renowned Swedish painter and etcher working in the early twentieth century. James Montgomery Flagg was a famous American painter and illustrator active in the first half of that century. Warren Clements has written verses to accompany and sometimes collide with these artists’ drawings, engravings and etchings.

E.g. Joe takes credit, posing nicely/ After conquering the course./ “Um, excuse me, who precisely/ Did the running?” asks the horse. Or: If asked to sport your evening wear/ When you go out to dinner,/ A tip, if you’d look debonair:/ Pyjamas aren’t a winner.
