Originally published in 1961, this exuberant picture book was illustrated and designed by Paul Rand, one of the most influential graphic designers of the twentieth century. The text by Ann Rand is filled with clever wordplay and not only tells the engaging story of Little 1 and his quest for a friend, but makes learning numbers and simple addition positively fun.
In addition to the four children's books he illustrated, Paul Rand wrote and co-wrote several others, and designed some of the best-known corporate icons of his time, including the logos for ABC, IBM, and UPS.
Ann Rand wrote five children's books, four of which were illustrated by her husband.
