Laura Gilpin studied at the Clarence White School of Photography
before returning home to Colorado Springs to begin her career. This
on the town's progressive nursery school was one of her first
commissions. She designed the book herself, in addition to illustrating
it with her own photographs. Gilpin would go on to a distinguished
career as a photographer, known especially for her sensitive portraits
of the landscape and peoples of the American Southwest.
