New to the Library: Children’s Picturebooks

Most people have fond memories of picturebooks they enjoyed as children – perhaps it was something by Quentin Blake or Where the Wild Things Are or Rosie’s Walk. All of these and many more produced by illustrators and artists from across the world are celebrated in  Morag Styles and Martin Salisbury’s book Children’s Picturebooks: the Art of Visual Storytelling. It is a fascinating exploration of the art of the picturebook as well as a visual treat. Check for Library availability here.
