American author and illustrator William Pène Sherman du Bois was born May 9, 1916, in Nutley, New Jersey, and died February 5, 1993, in Nice, France. Particularly known as an author and illustrator of children's books, he also illustrated many works by other writers.
All his family were artists, and du Bois followed the family tradition. He studied art in France in the 1930s, served in World War II as a correspondent for Yank and other magazines, and in 1953 became the first art director of George Plimpton's Paris Review.
