100 Great Children's Picturebooks

$40.00

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.
