Jacob Lawrence Makes a World follows the creative adventures of the young artist as he finds inspiration in the vibrant colours and characters of his community in Harlem. From his mothers apartment, where he is surrounded by brightly coloured walls with intricate patterns, to the streets full of familiar and not-so-familiar faces, sounds, rhythms and smells, to the art studio where he goes each day after school to transform his everyday world on an epic scale, Jacob takes readers on an enchanting journey through the bustling sights and sounds of his neighborhood. This vividly illustrated book about the artist Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) and his childhood in New York during the Harlem Renaissance is full of colourful street scenes that evoke the rich African-American culture and community captured by Lawrence in his landmark Migration series.
