This unashamed visual feast celebrates the best designed and illustrated picturebooks from around the world over the past one hundred years. 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. About the Author: Martin Salisbury is a lecturer in illustration and a freelance illustrator. He designed and leads the UK's first Masters program in children's book illustration at Anglia Ruskin University. He is the author of Illustrating Children's Books (Quarto/A&C Black), a practical guide to illustration.
