Synopsis: Illustrated Children’s Books is a detailed look into the design and stories of children’s books, focusing on the well-known illustrators and characters that have influenced readers of all ages.

Illustrated Children’s Books goes back and visits the history of children’s books, looking at the design and characters of these well loved tales. It takes us on a visual journey of the development of children’s illustrations throughout the ages, the notion of childhood’, historical facts and the design and illustration of these memorable books. Includes a foreword by the current Children's Laureate Anthony Browne.

From classics such as John Tenniel’s Alice in Wonderland and Winnie the Pooh, to well-known illustrators such as Quentin Blake, this book explores the cover design, character illustration and interiors of these well-loved stories. With commentary from some of the most renowned illustrators of the day, the book examines the iconic design of children’s illustrated storytelling and provides background information on the authors and illustrators.

Illustrated Children’s Books features perennial favourites such as Dr Seuss, Miffy, Eric Carle’s The Hungry Caterpillar, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are as well as recent successes such as Oliver Jeffers’ The Incredible Book Eating Boy.

With essays from Peter Hunt and Lisa Sainsbury. Peter Hunt is the Professor Emeritus in Children’s Literature at Cardiff University and awarded the International Brothers Grimm Award for services to children’s literature in 2003. Lisa Sainsbury is based at the National Centre for Research in Children’s Literature at Roehampton University.

From the Back Cover: Illustrated Children s Books is a celebration of the power of the picture-book and its great ability to capture the imaginations of children and adults alike.
With a Foreword by Anthony Browne, Illustrated Children s Books takes us on a visual journey through the history of this unique medium. From Struwwelpeter to Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, from Dogger to Angelina Ballerina, the book explores old favorites as well as showcasing cutting-edge new talent, and shines a light on the printing processes, design formats and character illustrations of some of the best loved children s books from the past 250 years.
Peter Hunt follows the early development of illustrated books in his essay on the first appearances of literature for children, up until the mid-1940s, and Lisa Sainsbury picks up the trail and traces the history of the picture-book in her essay from 1945 to the present day.
Featuring profiles on esteemed authors and illustrators, including Richard Scarry, Quentin Blake and Mini Grey, Illustrated Children s Books is a testament to the lasting impression picture-books place in our imagination, and our memories of them.
