Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a nice introduction to Americans about what British illustration for Children's Book is - sadly, it never really gets past this.

I was hoping for a little more sketches and other drawings from the brilliant artists feature, unfortunately, only a handful of the artists apparently got this memo - the vast majority of the book is just reprints from children's classics that you probably already own or have seen. Raymond Briggs and Posy Simmonds sections are my favourite, and show what this book could have been.

Regardless of my little nitpicking there - the illustrations are nice, varied, and beautifully reproduced. The intro is a nice walk through of the genre, and includes many small reprints of classic paintings.

It's a nice book, especially if you're American. I would definitely get the artist's other collections though.
