A Brush Full of Colour, the World of Ted Harrison (Pajama Press) is illustrated by Jessica Rae Gordon. This beautifully designed book is a biography of Canadian artist Ted Harrison. His child-friendly art is used for the cheerful, bright illustrations while the text creates a deeper understanding of the interesting life of this Canadian immigrant and iconic painter.
