I love it too.
I highly recommend that you read Review by LINDA ROBINSON(Michigan) in conjunction with my red flag re font sizes here. Apparently she did not purchase the book but she is very conscientious in her review. I DID purchase the book. And I need to know what it says...so I am suffering along even using a MAGNIFYING GLASS at times & writing profuse notes in the space the authors left available by robbing the text & notes on illustrations of FONT SIZE.
Given this warning...that you may want to wait for this book to be available for ebook reading, the authors have done a brilliant job & the book is superb.
When first asked to review this book a few years ago, I did so to learn more about my craft. Though I haven't written anything brand new in a while, my first book was a picturebook and I have two more under contract. For this reason, the sections Print and Process and The Children's Publishing Industry were especially interesting to me.
Children's Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling is a resource I'll be holding onto and referring back to as I grow in my craft.
I received a copy of this book directly from the publisher. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
