Introducing a New Children’s Book:  Coney – A Trip to Luna Park

 

I am introducing the website that will be featuring all the aspects of “Coney – A Trip to Luna Park”- a new children’s book that I have written and illustrated.

It takes place in Coney Island in 1904, and stars 2 Young Rabbits, a Sister & Brother from Manhattan, and Fred Thompson, the creator and designer of Luna Park in turn of the century Brooklyn!

I invite all those who may be interested in Coney Island, Luna Park, children’s picture books, and fantasy- to visit my site dedicated to the creation of this book.

I have been fascinated with Coney Island for many years, researching the history in words and images. This story came to me like a lightning bolt- and I have developed it to a stage where I want to share it with everyone!

 

 

 

In the next few months I will be posting new drawings and paintings on a regular basis as I continue work towards the completion of the books images and design. My ultimate goal is to have the work crowd-sourced on Kickstarter.

In the meantime, please check out these sections in my site:

All comments are Very Welcome!  I want to be in touch will all those people out there who may have fond memories of Coney as I do- even though I don’t go back far enough to remember 1904!   Thank you-     Jeff Lindberg
