The illustrator, Tom Shefelman, is an architect in Texas. His interest in buildings began when he was nine and was given a set of Compton’s Picture Encyclopedia.  One of the pictures was of the Temple of Karnak on the  Nile River.  When he was much older he decided to become an architect. His fascination with buildings seem to show through to his children’s book illustrations.  In I, Vivaldi Shefelman includes many buildings and structures in his illustrations.  Compare the illustrations with these found photographs.
