100 Great Children's Picturebooks
By Martin Salisbury
This unashamed visual feast celebrates the best designed and illustrated picture books from around the world over the past one hundred years.
Each featured book was a creation of genius and inventiveness, and the design and illustration each represent reflect such diverse trends as Russian Constructivism, Italian Futurism, and Postwar Neo-romanticism. The selected titles mirror the time of their creation, reflecting social concerns from a child's and family's perspectives throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century. Each entry includes a description, an image of the cover, and several representative spreads.
Fearlessly confronting the frontiers between a child's picture book and art, this is a wonderful volume for collectors of books about books, presenting a collection that anyone with an interest in design, illustration, or children's literature should know about.
