     Jerry Pinkney signed poster.  Obtained in person at National Bookfest September 24th, 2005 in Washington DC. Jerry Pinkney has illustrated more than 100 books for children. The recipient of multiple Caldecott Honor Medals and Coretta Scott King Awards and Honors, he has taught illustration and conducted workshops at universities across the country, created art for the United States Postal Service's Black Heritage stamps, and had more than 20 one-man retrospective shows at major U.S. venues. His most recent books include God Bless the Child, and The Old African and Music from Our Lordís Holy Heaven.  Mr. Pinkney is the creator of the artwork for the 2005 National Book Festival.  At Top is a photo of Mr. Pinkney at the event.  The center is his signature as it appears on my poster and the bottom is the National Bookfest poster (not my personal one, but one I didn't have to scan).
