Little Big Books is a wonderful collection of work from 100 illustrators and creators of children picture books. That's 240 pages in this big beautiful hardcover book.

The illustrations are fun, playful and diverse. There's an appealing childlike simplicity to them. Each illustrator has a profile and there are five interviews talking about the psychology of children picture books, awards, and advice on publishing rights and licensing.

It's a great book for children book illustrators and those looking for inspiration on drawing for children.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Visually, this is a fabulous book and beautifully made, a good showcase of contemporary illustration in this genre. However, as an illustrator myself, I would have liked information as to the media used by these artists and, when foreign language book titles are given, an English translation. Mainly it's the lack of info on media - which I can often guess at - that disappointed me, and I don't see any reason to have left it out. Seems pretty basic for an art book.

This is a large book & the illustrations are a delight! A pleasure to view. I am much more cognizant of what is happening in the field, but apart from that... I simply enjoy perusing this book. It brings a smile to my face. I always loved Children's Picture Books as a child & continued to read them into adulthood & later to my own child.
This was a purchase of the heart & I was not disappointed.
