Today we're celebrating art associated with two authors from the second half of the last century who left indelible marks on readers.

First is an upcoming release from Rachel Carson.

Cut-paper artist Nikki McClure brought visual life to Something About the Sky, based on a television script Carson wrote for the show Omnibus.

The New York Times gives an early look at and background for this March 12 release.

Carson is, of course, best known for Silent Spring, a book that changed how we thought of chemicals; Judy Blume, meanwhile, hasn't changed policy but has been revolutionary in addressing, with honesty, what children and teens experience while growing up.

One of her most attention-grabbing works, in this regard, is Forever.

Book Riot did a retrospective on Forever via book covers, commenting on how it stood apart or blended in during various decades and reading into the design choices.
