Cotsen Children’s Library exhibits work by Leo Politi


Works by beloved children’s author and illustrator Leo Politi (1908-1996), including his Caldecott Medal-winning tale “Song of the Swallows,” are on view in an exhibition at the Cotsen Children’s Library.

During his career, Politi produced a number of picture books about children in the Los Angeles area, creating portraits of a dynamic region that has long been home to a highly diverse population. The exhibition, titled “Leo Politi’s Los Angeles: A Celebration of the Centenary of His Birth,” runs through Jan. 23. (image: Courtesy of Costen Children’s Library)
