Today, Pat the Bunny is still in print and has sold nearly ten million copies.Drawn entirely from the Kunhardt family collection, this publication brings Dorothy Kunhardt’s work to life generations later through photographs, letters, poetry, drawings, book mock-ups, unpublished manuscripts and full reproductions of first edition books. Also reproduced is a selection of research materials and papers pertaining to Kunhardt’s second consequential career, as an Abraham Lincoln scholar and steward of the Meserve Collection of Lincoln photographs and artifacts begun by her father.Born in New York City, Dorothy Kunhardt (1901–79) dictated her first story to her father at the age of three, and went on to become an inventive author, illustrator and creator of children’s books. She took her first stab at writing and illustrating with an outlandish devil-may-care picture book titled Junket Is Nice
