Little Big Books: Illustrations for Children's Picture BooksLittle Big Books: Illustrations for Children’s Picture Books by Robert Klanten

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was delightful, and the chance to experience the artwork of so many wonderful artists was a joy. I was slightly disappointed that only a small number of the artists featured were actually interviewed for the book, as I found the interviews to be as much of a highlight as the illustrations. Kitty Crowther’s interview especially was wonderful, funny and enlightening, in addition to her beautiful pictures. I did mark the book down slightly from four to five for this reason. Although if all the artists had been interviewed, it would of course have been a much longer and more expensive book!

However it’s a beautiful book and wonderfully presented, and I would still recommend it to anyone interested in art and book illustration.
