Signed first edition of Caldecott winner Chris Raschka’s exuberant visual tribute to Afrofuturist jazz pioneer Sun Ra and his Arkestra. “Sun Ra always said that he came from Saturn. Now, you know and I know that this silly. No one comes from Saturn. And yet. If he did come from Saturn, it would explain so much.” Raschka won the Caldecott Medal in 2006, for Hello, Goodbye Window, and in 2012, for A Ball for Daisy. A fine signed copy.
