100 Great Children’s Picture Books 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 book is a creation of genius and inventiveness.
The books' designs and illustrations represent diverse art historical trends such as Russian Constructivism, Italian Futurism and Postwar Neo-Romanticism. In addition, these books stand as mirrors of their times, reflecting social concerns throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century.
Fearlessly confronting the frontiers between a child’s picture book and art, this is a collection of books that anyone with an interest in design, illustration or simply children’s literature should know about.
