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
