You can find a lovely video of Remy here. He will be missed.

“Mr. Charlip’s half-century of work cut across a wide spectrum of art forms, aesthetic registers and audiences. He drew no particular distinctions among them. All were forms of an ‘internal dance,’ as he called it, that he liked to stage in his own and other people’s minds… The two forms he settled on, dance and children’s books, shared some essential elements. Both speak in a visual language for the most part, and both move through a series of scenes.

‘I love sequence, how one thing follows another,’ he said in the interview. ‘When you’re reading to a child, he can’t wait to get to the next page.  “Turn the page, turn the page!” That’s because each new page is a door to another, different world.”
