100 GREAT CHILDREN'S PICTUREBOOKS. Martin Salisbury. Laurence King Publishing Ltd, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Chronicle Books, San Francisco. 216 pp. with 425 col. ills. 29 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781780674087 In English.
Publisher's description: This unashamed visual feast celebrates the best designed and illustrated picturebooks from around the world over the past one hundred years. Each book is a creation of genius and inventiveness, and their design and illustration represent such diverse trends as the Russian Constructivists, Italian Futurists and Postwar Neo-romantics. They are also mirrors of their times reflecting social concerns from a child's and family's perspectives throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century. Fearlessly confronting the frontiers between a child's picturebook and art, this is a collection of books that anyone with an interest in design, illustration or simply children's literature should know about.
