Leo Politi Illustrations: Leo Politi (1908-1996) was a renowned artist and author of many children's books. Many of his books used Southern California landmarks as their settings and drew upon the unique cultural and historical heritage of this region. Mr. Politi enjoyed drawing and painting for children and visited many libraries and schools. From 1967 through the 1970s Politi made many visits to the Conejo Library, which later became the Thousand Oaks Library. During these visits he signed several of his books and added watercolor paintings. You can see Politi's work in our Book Arts Collection.
