The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature (NCCIL) is a non-profit organization incorporated in February of 1997 in the Abilene, Texas. NCCIL enhances visual and verbal literacy by celebrating the best original art published in children’s literature. The Center strives to honor the art of illustration and recognize the contribution of these artists, educate children and families about illustrated literature, provide programming that will increase appreciation of children’s books and the art in them, provide visual and verbal literacy training for educators who inspire children, and establish a presence nationally through exhibition partners and other art institutions.
These magnets are awesome!
I use them for numerous things, gluing them to flashlights so they won't rattle in a car.
Glued one on a old fine paint brush to sweep off my keyboard on my computer, storing it on a file cabinet in the room. Hold a piece of metal to be welded on a vehicle.
But the glue utilized must be strong, for the first stuff I used, the magnet tore loose from the flashlight. I use JB Weld-minute weld epoxy.
I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.
