About the Author
Saul Bass (1920–1996) was a celebrated American graphic designer and filmmaker, but he is best known for his design on animated motion-picture title sequences. During his forty-year career he worked for some of Hollywood’s greatest filmmakers, including most notably Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorsese. Among his most famous title sequences are those for Preminger’s The Man with the Golden Arm, and Hitchcock’s North by Northwest and Psycho. Leonore Klein wrote the children’s books What Would You Do If . . . (1956), Mud, Mud, Mud (1962), Brave Daniel (1966), and Only One Ant (1971), among many others. Besides writing books for children, Klein was a librarian in New York.
