Synopsis

100 Great Children's Picturebooks by Martin Salisbury

Each book is a creation of genius and inventiveness, and their design and illustration represent such diverse trends as the Russian Constructivists, Italian Futurists and Postwar Neo-romantics. They are also mirrors of their times reflecting social concerns from a child's and family's perspectives throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century. Fearlessly confronting the frontiers between a child's picturebook and art, this is a collection of books that anyone with an interest in design, illustration or simply children's literature should know about.

Reviews

100 Great Children's Picturebooks is filled to the brim with a luscious and dreamy as well as a graphic and minimal collection of illustrated works that will whisk you away, whether you're seven or 70. Publisher Laurence King should include a label warning readers that this title is known to cause book lust. - AIGA Eye on Design

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
