This companion to the best-selling Front Cover is the first visual survey of over 200 years in children’s book jacket and cover design. It traces a history that goes from the hand-colored engravings of the 1800s to the digital art of today, and features the work of the most influential illustrators (including Beatrix Potter, Maurice Sendak, and Quentin Blake), plus all the popular series: Babar, Dr. Seuss, Harry Potter, and more. Classics, the latest designs, plus rare finds and first editions make this a must-have book for collectors, designers, and anyone who loves art.
